EARS Independent Advocacy Service (SCIO)
EARS is an independent advocacy service that has been providing indepenndent advocacy to people in Edinburgh and the Lothians since 1999.
EARS aims to provide independent advocacy, which will:
- assist and support you to speak up
- ensure that people who cannot speak up for themselves have their voices heard
- provide the information you need to ensure that you can make informed choices and decisions
- assist you to gain control over your situations and lives
- protect your rights
EARS Independent Advocacy Service can enable you because it provides the conflict-free support you need – especially during those times when you feel you have no control or choice over the decisions being made for/about you or the options open to you.
EARS also strives to raise awareness of the role of independent advocacy and the benefit advocacy can have in improving people’s outcomes/lives.
For those using the service EARS will be ‘on your side and by your side‘.
