Advocacy Support Cymru

Our professional Advocates speak up for those who feel unable to do so themselves.

We advocate for individuals who are experiencing mental health conditions yet are entitled to be a full part of the decision making process affecting their lives.

Often finding themselves in sensitive and complex situations, ASC aims to support people to understand and participate in what can be a complicated and long process with professionals from a variety of fields.

Founded 1993

  • Mission statement

    Our vision is to consistently provide the highest possible quality of independent advocacy.

    Our focus is to value, support and work with people who need to be heard in order to promote social inclusion, equality and social justice.

    We believe independent advocacy is important because it seeks to give a voice to people who can't make themselves heard.

    Advocacy helps to ensure that people are as involved as they can be in the things that affect them, and are able to communicate their needs and wishes to others who may have influence or power over their lives.

  • Aims

    Advocacy Support Cymru aims to:

    • ASC provides independent advocacy to help people gain/regain control of their lives. We help people have their say on the things that matter to them, without fear and with confidence.
    • We specialise in providing statutory Independent Mental Health Advocacy and Community Mental Health Advocacy to qualifying patients in South Wales under the Mental Health (Wales) Measure.
    • The strategic aim of the organisation is to continue with it's success and to utilise our expertise in seeking further opportunities.
