“Help us to empower people to live fulfilling lives“
“I love Independent Advocacy and it’s commitment to people. We may be small but we have a really loyal group of donors and supporters that help us to help others. Why not join them in helping us!”.
Independent Advocacy is a registered charity. Our work empowers people to lead fulfilling lives through our work in communities, advocacy, money and learning. We aim to reduce social isolation and improve people self-esteem, building networks and friendships in the local community where people live. We believe that we are stronger together and love working with like- minded people and organisations to bring about change.
We currently support over 700 people in the West Midlands especially in Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire.
A third of our work is dependent on grants and donations. There are many ways you can help us – from a donation or gift in a will, to fundraising, volunteering, or corporate support.
Projects you could support
Our mental health peer support group in Solihull needs to be able to hire a minibus so that the group can go to the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham to experience the calming nature of plants. We need £500 to hire the minibus – Can You Help?
Listen to Dave who organises the group talk about what they do.
£25 could pay for an advice session for a vulnerable person
£100 could pay for a volunteer to be trained as a digital champion to help isolated people to get online
£1,000 could pay for the development of five community accreditation ‘badges’ for people with low level skills
“Even a small amount helps. We ensure that 85p in every £1 you donate goes to our front-line work. Just click on the DONATE button on our website and follow the simple instructions.”
Or why not set up a direct debit to support our work. Just £10 a month would make a difference to someone’s life, and help us do more with the people we support.
Any money you DONATE will be making a real difference to local people’s lives.
