Age UK Leicestershire & Rutland is a member of Age UK and its values are based upon being caring, effective, innovative and influential. Services are delivered in many different settings throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Advocacy has been provided by Age UK Leicestershire & Rutland for a number of years but unfortunately ended in March 2012 when Local Authority funding ceased. Two examples of its casework are given in the films below.

This toolkit is especially useful for advocacy organisations looking to provide in-depth induction training for staff and volunteers on the personalisation process. A copy of the Age UK Leicestershire & Rutland toolkit is available by clicking here

In the following film, Yasmin from Age UK Leicestershire & Rutland talks to Frank and Lynn about the help that advocacy provided.
