Partners in Advocacy

Charity registered in Scotland SC027857

Partners in Advocacy started as part of Barnardos in the 1980’s and became a completely independent organisation in 1998. We are very proud that we are one of the oldest established independent advocacy organisations in Scotland. We have offices in Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our Advocacy Workers come from many different backgrounds. We are also fortunate to have Volunteer Advocates who are supported from our Edinburgh office. We provide independent advocacy for individuals living with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders, physical disabilities and people over 65. We also provide independent advocacy to children and young people who are living with mental health issues, additional support needs and learning disabilities. We remain the only independent advocacy service working Scotland-wide that supports children aged 12 to 15 to have their views considered when decisions are being made about the support they get with their learning. We offer independent advocacy which is free to individuals, as well as some collective advocacy (group advocacy).
