Welcome to Advocacy First

What is Advocacy?

Advocacy is taking action to support people to say what they want, secure their rights, pursue their interests and obtain services they need.

Advocacy is representing someone else’s views and concerns as if they were your own.

Advocacy First provide a free and confidential service to inpatients when they need to make decisions about their treatment, future care and
where and how they live when they leave hospital.

Advocacy First is an independent, locally based charity established in 1998 helping people in the Bromley area.

We work in partnership with local authorities and other organisations.

We aim to ensure that people have easy access to advocacy services, which can range from short-term help and support, to the support of self-advocacy.

We offer our services for patients living in the London Borough of Bromley, who are in hospital.
