BILINGUAL ADVOCACY

Bilingual Advocacy
We work in your language

We provide an independent, culturally sensitive, bilingual advocacy service and practical assistance supporting clients to fully access their rights and entitlements and negotiate service provisions.

We work with all minority ethnic communities, including refugees, asylum seekers, Roma and other Eastern European communities.  We specialise in supporting those with little or no English.

As a service we run several surgeries across Leeds in areas local to the communities we are supporting.

Our service provides information and practical assistance to aid clients in accessing services, working to ensure that:

  • Clients fully understand their rights and options and are fully heard, and
  • Services are appropriate and understanding of client needs.

Advocacy is provided in relation to:

  • Social care,
  • Health Services,
  • Welfare benefits and tax credits,
  • Housing,
  • Debt and financial management.
