Advocacy for deaf people

Advocacy for Deaf People

Here at Advonet, we are able to provide advocacy for deaf people using British Sign Language (BSL). Mark Healy, one of our Lead Advocates, is able to help to make your voice heard. For more info about what advocacy is and what we do, please watch the video below.

How we can provide advocacy

In our office, delivered face-to-face with our Lead Advocate. Please note that they are only in the office on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Via video, either through Skype or FaceTime. You will be able to talk to our Lead Advocate without having to come to the office.

SignHealth are part of the same consortium of organisations to provide advocacy services in Leeds as Advonet. They are a charity dedicated to making sure Deaf people get the same sort of access as hearing people to healthcare and health information. Click on their logo to the left to visit their website.
