Flintshire Independant Advocacy Service
In Flintshire we provide an Independent Advocacy service for adults with a learning disability.
Our Advocates can support you to be as involved as possible in making decisions about your life, such as:
Where you live
The service you receive
Support to attend meetings about your care/service
How you live your life
Advocate at a Best Interest meeting
As well as providing Independent Advocacy we are supporting individuals to attend and develop Self-advocacy groups. These groups help to make sure that the community’s voice is heard and is taken into consideration when services by the Council are planned.
Out of County
For vulnerable people receiving social care services and living in North Wales who are from other places in the UK, we are able to provide an advocacy service if the placing local authority agrees to pay for that service. We welcome any enquiries about this.

Nwaaa passionately believes in enabling people to overcome problems and make informed choices that will improve their lives. We aim to work with people before a situation becomes a crisis, and we aim to work in a way that supports independence and participation. This is called empowerment.
Nwaaa values diversity and difference and will work hard with or on behalf a person who be-lieves they are being excluded or disadvantaged because of who they are. This means we fight for equal opportu-nities and human rights.
