    Here For You

Coronavirus

Getting help from Independent Advocacy during the COVID–19 Outbreak

Update at 25th March

The coronavirus outbreak is affecting how Angus Independent Advocacy can support people at this time.

Our main priority is to ensure that we keep people safe by adhering to government advice, this includes members of our management committee, staff, volunteers and the people who are currently using or might need Independent Advocacy.

We will continue to provide advocacy support to people throughout Angus but this will be a more limited service based upon health advice issued by the UK and Scottish Governments.

As of 17th March our Arbroath office is closed and we are providing a telephone / email based service.

The service will be available Monday to Thursday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-2pm with our Direct Advocacy Team and Citizen Advocacy Team.  Please note there is no answer machine facility outwith these times.  

There will be no advocacy in attendance at external meetings but we will try to offer other ways to help you have your rights protected, views heard and taken into account.

If you already have an allocated Advocacy Worker or Citizen Advocate please contact them in the usual way.

Please call 01241 434413 if you feel that you need advocacy support with:

  • An upcoming Mental Health Tribunal
  • Adult Support Protection proceedings
  • Adults with Incapacity proceedings
  • A Children’s Hearing Panel or social work meetings concerning families at risk

Please note that we do not have access to any postal mail until the office can re-open. If you have sent us information and need to get in contact please email or call on the details provided above.

Angus Independent Advocacy will also seek to support vulnerable people in our communities who are in particular risk from the impacts of coronavirus and we can help by connecting you with local and national agencies who can offer specialist advice and assistance if need be.

This is a highly unusual time with rapidly changing situations. We will review our arrangements on a daily basis and update the website accordingly.

We send our best wishes to everyone at this time.
