Advocacy Highland

Advocacy Highland provides one-to-one, independent issue-based advocacy to individuals aged 16 and over throughout the Highlands. We are funded to advocate for people identified under the terms of the Mental Health (Care & Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003, specifically people with mental ill health, learning disabilities, personality disorders or dementia.
