Lewisham Speaking Up’s 1-2-1 Advocacy Services

Advocacy Surgery

At our Advocacy Thursdays we can help people with problems which are quick to sort out. We have helped people with reading letters, applying for a Freedom Pass, making a complaint about a service, asking for more time when they are applying for benefits and lots more. The Advocacy Thursday is on the last Thursday of the month. It is for adults with a learning disability who live in Lewisham borough. You have to make an appointment.

Call Philippa Bradnock on 07521 242 026 or email philippa.bradnock@lsup.org.uk.

Crime and Hate Crime 1-2-1 Advocacy Service

If you think that you, or someone you know, has been taken advantage of or abused in any way, this could be a Crime. It could still be a crime even if the person doing it is a ‘friend’ or works with you. If they are doing it because
you have learning disabilities, it could even be a Hate Crime.

For help to know your Rights, to Report it, and to stop it, contact crimeadvocate@lsup.org.uk Colin Finch 07593 058464

Community Advocacy

This service supports people with learning disabilities who get little or no support from the Council. A volunteer advocate will be matched with a person with a learning disability who may need help to speak up, be heard, and to know their rights. Volunteer Advocates help with a
variety of issues.

We are delighted to announce this new service, funded by Henry Smith Charity, starting in June 2021. A specialist Advocate can help people with learning disabilities who are experiencing ‘money’ related difficulties. This includes help with debt, bills, benefits, and budgeting.
