Introducing Advocacy Alliance

Advocacy Alliance is a voluntary organisation, established in 1990 to provide free, independent and confidential advocacy to empower individuals and enable them to have their voice heard. It involves a small team of staff and volunteers who manage and develop advocacy throughout the area. We are a registered charity based in Scarborough but cover a wide area across North Yorkshire including Filey, Whitby and Ryedale. 

We aim to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their voice heard on issues that are important to them
  • Defend and safeguard their rights
  • Have their views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives

Advocacy is a process of supporting and enabling people to:

  • Express their views and concerns
  • Access information and services
  • Defend and promote their rights and responsibilities 
  • Explore choice and options
