Statutory Advocacy Engagement

This consultation is now closed.

Advocacy is where you get support to help you to speak up for yourself and get your voice heard. They can also help you to find information and understand your rights.We would like to hear your views about Statutory Advocacy. This is to help us shape the new advocacy service which will be in place from 1 September 2022. It is called statutory because this support must be offered locally. In Cheshire, statutory advocacy is provided by Age UK Cheshire and Disability Positive. Cheshire East Council and Cheshire West and Chester Council pay for this service.
