Oxfordshire Advocacy

Providing free advocacy support to vulnerable residents in Oxfordshire

About Oxfordshire Advocacy

I would like to say thank you for all your support. I only contacted you last week and your input at such short notice is really appreciated and has made a big difference. We have been struggling for so long trying to get the doctors to listen to us to make sure that he gets the treatment he needs. As James* has no family, I have felt very  responsible for the way he has been let down by his doctors. Having an advocate  to support us in getting our case across has already meant that things have changed for the better for James. I only wish I had contacted you sooner. (*name has been changed)
