Advocacy Services

Dorset Advocacy

Dorset Advocacy exists to create and support one to one partnerships between people who have learning disabilities and volunteer advocates. Through these partnerships, people who have a learning disability can speak up, promote their interests, and play a fuller part in the life of their community.

For more information please contact 01305 251033 or email enquiries@dorsetadvocacy.co.uk

Dorset Race Equality Council

Dorset Race Equality Council works in partnership with all Dorset Councils to provide an advocacy service for minority ethnic individuals. They help anyone who feels that they have received a poor service or have been treated differently because of their race, religion, faith or belief. They also help victims of abuse, harassment or violence (Hate Crimes).

The Community Advocate remains independent from all local statutory bodies but has strong links and partnerships within them to be able to resolve any issues. They discuss a course of action with each client, and act in the best interests of the client at all times.

For more information please contact their office on 01202 392954. Alternatively email enquiries@dorsetrec.org.uk
