Advocacy First is passionate about making your voice heard.
We listen to you to find out what you want, and give you all the options available for you to choose about when you leave hospital.
Our role is to listen to, and act upon, your wishes so we can help you leave hospital sooner.
About Advocacy First
Each year, Advocacy First help people from all walks of life. Our service is free and confidential. We provide confidential advocacy for patients in hospital, empowering them to leave hospital to a location and way living of their choice. We bridge the gaps in service for patients and work together with other organisations in the area.
We listen to clients issues and work for them.
We work in partnership with other organisations where appropriate and beneficial. Sometimes we may have to make referrals to other organisations when advocacy is not the answer to a problem.
Meet our team of trustees today! Our team is highly experienced, friendly, and here to support you in leaving hospital.
Sponsorship, and working with Advocacy First can benefit your company in many ways, not least by increasing your corporate social responsibility profile.
We are always grateful for sponsorships. Whilst some of our sponsors give money, others give time and equipment. All sponsors will have their name published in our literature as a matter of course.
You can get involved through sponsorship; employee fundraising; payroll giving; or gifts in kind.
Advocacy First has been running since 1998. Our main aim is to ensure individuals being discharged from hospital are listened to, and their views acted upon.
Working with Social Services and many other charities and organisations our specialist advocates will assist to reduce patient stress and help instil confidence by ensuring that plans are in place for future accommodation. We serve residents of London Borough of Bromley, and non-residents that are patients of hospitals in Bromley
