Welcome to Cloverleaf Advocacy

We work with people who need support to speak up and have their voices heard.

Cloverleaf Advocacy is still working and accepting referrals during the current COVID-19 situation. You can use our usual phone numbers and email addresses but we are changing the way we work.   

 

We are following government guidance on how we work safely. Most important is the health, wellbeing and safety of people we work with, of our staff and volunteers and others.

 

We are looking at different ways for advocates to work with people during this time including supporting over the phone and by video call.

 

It has been a difficult decision to stop self-advocacy and support groups until further notice, we will stay in touch with all members regularly and look at offering support in different ways.

 

If you have any concerns, please contact your advocate in the usual way or call us on 01924 454875.

 

'Advocacy' is all about people controlling their own lives. We help people to make their own decisions and achieve their own goals. Our work includes supporting individuals or groups to:

  • access information or services
  • be more in control of decisions about their own lives
  • look at choices and options
  • know their rights
  • speak up about issues that matter to them

When people struggle to communicate their views and wishes, we are guided by behavioural cues and body language. We can also speak to those who care about the person, to build a picture of what they like and dislike. We then try to ensure these preferences are at the forefront of any decisions about that person.

We support people to become healthy, happy, active, involved and independent. 

We work with people living in Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire, Tameside and East Lancashire.

We are independent from health & social care providers. This means we are not part of the NHS, social services, residential homes or hospitals. We can support you to say what your wishes are, even when others may not agree. Many people tell us they really value this unique partnership between advocate and client.

Our services are free to people that use them.
