Advocacy Case Study: Gary's Story
Gary was living at a residential home on a temporary basis but wanted to move back to where he lived before. He needed a social care needs assessment in order to do this, but he was finding it difficult to get in touch with his social worker.
Because of these difficulties, he decided he wanted a new social worker. He had an advocate with him to facilitate the process of getting a new social worker, so any action taken would be under the instruction of Gary who found it difficult to communicate over the phone.
Together, Gary and his advocate were able to speak with the social work team and he was allocated a new worker.
Since, Gary moved back home, and is now feeling empowered and confident to take the control of the decisions that affect his own care and support thanks to the impact Advocacy has had on him.
