The Royal Association for Deaf people (RAD) are pleased to announce their partnership with VoiceAbility and other local specialist providers to deliver advocacy to Deaf adults living in the London Borough of Hounslow.

We offer independent, qualified advocacy support across a range of issues for residents of the London Borough of Hounslow.

What is an advocate?

An advocate is someone who can take action to support people to make informed choices, secure their rights, represent their needs and obtain services. Advocates speak up for people and/or encourage individuals to speak up for themselves.

We can help with issues such as:

• Making an NHS complaint (Independent Health Complaints Advocacy- IHCA)

Complaints can be made about any NHS service received, which people are unhappy with. This includes dentists, GP’s, Walk-in services and Hospitals.

• Understand your rights under the Mental Health Act (Independent Mental Health Advocacy- IMHA)
