Advocacy Centre North, part of Newcastle CVS, has been awarded funding from People’s Postcode Trust to deliver an exciting advocacy service, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The service supports vulnerable adults in Newcastle and Gateshead who have suffered discrimination or disadvantage and also helps them to develop skills to self-advocate.

Jacqui Jobson, Director of Advocacy Centre North, said:

“I am delighted that we are now able to provide much-needed advocacy to people who have suffered discrimination or disadvantage, for example because of their ethnicity, religion, gender, age, sexuality or disability. We will provide them with a voice and support them to have their rights upheld and access services from a rights-based perspective using the full legislative and human rights toolkit.”
