Help us to empower people to live fulfilling lives

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?

Sassy Social Share

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.

Whatever help you can provide, please call us on 02476 697443 to have a chat or email
