Ceartas Advocacy provides Independent Advocacy to adults (aged 16 or over) who are normally resident in East Dunbartonshire. We prioritise working with nine groups of people:
Ceartas welcomes referrals from Social Work, Health Professionals, carers (professional or unpaid), friends, neighbours, family members, and of course you can refer yourself for Independent Advocacy.
Independent Advocacy is independent of any other service provider, like Social Work or the NHS. Independent Advocacy works on your behalf, to make your voice stronger, and is free of charge.
