If you’re finding it difficult to access any of our services or give us feedback about your experience of them, you can ask for help from an advocacy service.
Advocacy services can help you to express your views and wishes and support you to find information about the services that you need.
Barnsley advocacy service
If you are using adult social services and want some help to make a complaint, or have your views heard, you can contact Cloverleaf Advocacy. They can provide a service to any vulnerable adult who is over the age of 18 and lives in Barnsley, including:
- people with learning disabilities
- people with physical or sensory disabilities
- people who have mental health issues
- older people
- people with Autism or Asperger's
The service offers one-to-one support, as well as a mixture of advocacy groups and drop-ins that you may wish to attend. It is free, independent from the council or any other organisation, and is confidential.
Your advocate will be able to:
- help you access services
- support or represent you in meetings
- make sure you get your views or requirements across
