Diabetes UK - Advocacy Service

Many people find it difficult, at times, to get their voice heard about decisions or issues that affect their lives.

Advocacy is taking action to help people to access information, explore and understand their options, and to make their views and wishes known.

The main form of advocacy we are currently providing involves letter writing, sending emails and making phone calls on behalf of clients.

If you are not in need of assistance but are confused about your rights and would like to advocate for yourself, we have produced a series of Advocacy packs which will help clarify your rights and the options available to you.

We are not able to offer

  • Legal advice or legal advocacy,

  • Accompanying to meetings,

  • Detailed benefit advice,

  • Health advice.

But we can refer people on to the relevant agencies that can help.
