About this cause

About our cause

The charity was established in July 1994. Since inception, Asist's core activity has been the delivery of one-to-one, issue based advocacy services to people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and/or mental health conditions. This service has developed over the years to encompass all of the County of Staffordshire and the City of Stoke-on-Trent supported from our offices in Stoke, Stafford, Burton, Harplands and Chadsmoor. In the last 12 months the organisation has successfully supported over 2000 clients across the region.

Asist works alongside people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities or mental health conditions. We strive to ensure that there is support for people who have difficulty speaking out, so that they can have an equal voice in the choices and decisions that affect their lives.

An advocate will not be judgemental, and will not try to guide or influence the people they work with by telling them what the advocate thinks is in their best interest - advocacy is about enabling people to speak up and make their own, informed, independent choices.

An advocate can support people to:
•find information about their options
•discuss and understand their situation and the choices available to them
•speak up; by supporting them at meetings and reviews, including those with health and social care services and helping people to write letters or make calls.
