We provide advocacy for Black Minority Ethnic (BME) people with mental health issues who are hospital inpatients and to those who need or are receiving treatment in the community.
The world of advocacy is growing giving the role itself more recognition in the reform of the Mental Health Act ‘White paper’ (2021). There are four advocacy services in the UK created by law.
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 allows people who lack capacity (who cannot make some decisions for themselves) to be looked after in a care home or hospital.
If you do not have a legally qualified person to represent you in the family court but speak for yourself, you are called a ‘litigant in person’.
We offer a range of training to suit your business and individual professional development.
In times of stress it may be difficult to focus and make sense of letters, fines, or your health and wellbeing.
Volunteering supports the ‘Spirit of Empower Consultants CIC’ initiative. We recognise the valuable contribution our volunteers make to our organisation and we offer great opportunities; with meaningful accredited training, mentoring and coaching support. Our volunteers are supported in their personal and professional development.
