Advocacy Service

Working in South East Essex, Peaceful Place are now happy to announce our Free Advocacy Services.

If you have been diagnosed with young onset dementia or are supporting someone who has, then an Advocate may be able to help. There may be times when you need help to get things done, for example if you are having difficulty accessing benefits or services. Advocacy represents your interests and helps you obtain the services you need. An advocate is someone who argues your case for you and makes sure the correct procedures are followed.
