Provider's Name: EARS Advocacy

Type: Charity/Voluntary

EARS provides trained, independent, professional advocacy workers. EARS advocates are independent because they are not employed by any social work department, health board or residential/nursing care home. EARS aims to provide independent advocacy, which will:
  • assist and support you to speak up for themselves – self-advocate
  • ensure that people who cannot speak up for themselves have their voices heard – advocate on behalf of you
  • provide opportunities for you to meet and self-advocate on common issues – collective/group advocacy
  • assist you to achieve their goals and/or to access the services they need or would benefit from
  • provide the information you need to ensure that they can make informed choices and decisions
  • assist you to gain control over their situations and lives
  • protect your rights
EARS Advocacy Service can enable you because it provides the conflict-free support you need – especially during those times when you feel you have no control or choice over the decisions being made for/about you or the options open to you. EARS also strives to raise awareness of the role of advocacy and the benefit advocacy can have in improving people’s outcomes/lives. For those using the service EARS will be "on your side and by your side".
