“We are a small, independent Charity that advocates on behalf of adults who experience financial, and/or, social difficulties in their lives and need someone to work on their behalf. This enables them to access services and benefits that they are entitled to. We also safeguard their rights, empowering them to make informed choices to improve their quality of life.”
