Help us to empower people to live fulfilling lives

Claire Evans

Director of Finance and Fundraising

“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.

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