Advocacy Centre North, part of Newcastle CVS, has just been awarded an exciting contract to deliver statutory advocacy services across the Borough Council of Gateshead to vulnerable residents.

Jacqui Jobson, Director at Advocacy Centre North said:

“I am delighted to extend our services across Gateshead. We look forward to working with our partners in Gateshead Council, to deliver essential advocacy support to people under the Mental Health Act, Mental Capacity Act and the Care Act. Giving vulnerable people a voice is at the heart of our service, and this contract will help us to increase our reach in the region. This contract adds to our existing portfolio of services in Gateshead, where we already provide a voice, access to services and uphold the rights of people with neurological conditions, those with complex needs, those leading chaotic lives and those struggling to navigate within the welfare system. The contract is initially for two years with a further two year extension and we intend to start networking across Gateshead from April 2017 to raise our profile.”
