Daycare & Residential Support


Independent Advocacy in Residential and Day Care Settings – working with providers to create truly person centred care.


Asist can provide independent advocacy support within a range of private care services across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire

We can provide an external, independent perspective that ensures that residential and day care services remain outward looking, transparent and responsive and individuals have access to external support to support them in expressing their views and wishes. From the point of view of providers it is a very powerful way of demonstrating the quality of your service and your commitment to person centred care.

Offering independent advocacy means that people being supported within care services:

  • Are able to have a voice in decisions affecting their lives

  • Can speak up when they are not happy

  • Who do not have friends and family have an independent person to talk to and look out for them


We can create a package of independent advocacy support to meet the particular needs of your service and the people you support. This could include a regular drop-in at an agreed frequency and duration or a number of advocacy support hours on an annual basis. We currently work with services as diverse as residential support including adults with learning disabilities, transition services for people with autism, older people’s homes and residential schools.

For further details contact us, and speak to the advocacy manager about spot purchasing or commissioning advocacy provision.


Asist provides specialist independent advocacy support focused on one-to-one, issue based advocacy services for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and/or mental health issues.


Advocacy is about enabling people who have difficulty speaking out to speak up and make their own, informed, independent choices about decisions that affect their lives.


Asist provides the Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy service (IMCA) and the Independent Mental Health Act Advocacy service (IMHA) in Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent. Asist also offers advocacy to people in Stoke on Trent through a number of specialist projects including Care Act, BME, NHS Complaints and Parents Advocacy.

Asist is nationally recognised for developing, writing and promoting the Watching Brief guidance which outlines the core principles that underpin all Non-Instructed Advocacy support services across the UK.
