Advocacy Services

Leicester Independent Advocacy Service for Older People, People with Physical Disabilities and other Vulnerable Adults


LCPT’s Advocacy service for Leicester City residents provides an ‘issue based’ response in order to empower people and maximize their independence. We will do this by supporting you to express your views and needs, ensuring that your voice is heard. This is a service for people 18 or over and also for young people undergoing transition to adult social care services. This service is free to those who use it and is independent of the local authority. 

Priority for the provision of independent advocacy support will be given to people where social care workers are currently involved and where it is clear from the issues that advocacy is needed. Therefore, priority will be given to referrals from Leicester City Council’s Adult Social Care department.
Referrals can also be accepted from:
  • Individuals (self-referral)
  • Carers
  • Health professionals
  • Voluntary and community organisations
If the help you need can’t be provided by us, then we will do our best to put you in touch with a service that can.
All information we receive is treated in strict confidence and we have a leaflet explaining our confidentiality policy. This is available on request.
 If you would like to talk to somebody in the Advocacy Team then please ring:

Referrals can be made directly by telephone or by downloading a referral form from our website at:
