A Cardiff and Vale Advocacy Steering Group has produced a draft Regional Strategy for future advocacy services for adults to meet the responsibilities and duties to provide advocacy in the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 and the advocacy needs of local citizens through considering all types of advocacy from informal advocacy by family or friends, through other forms of non-statutory independent advocacy to independent professional advocacy as defined by the Act 2014.
We are seeking your views to inform the development and quality of the draft Regional Strategy untill April 30th.
