POhWER's impact goes beyond supporting our clients to resolve their issues.

Our services to local authorities ensure that the most vulnerable people's views are at the heart of decisions made about them. Advocates ensure that their clients’ wishes and feelings are central to decisions and plans for their future.

Our achievements in 2015/16:

  • We supported over 30,000 people and received over 158,000 contacts, including just over 118,000 telephone calls. The majority of our clients have mental health issues, learning difficulties or physical disabilities.
  • We provided services in 50 local authorities reaching from East Sussex to Glasgow. 

Community Advocacy Impact Report

Community Advocacy Impact ReportIn 2015, we published our first impact report on Community Advocacy - around the impact the work we do has on both individuals and their communities. This report tells the stories of just some of the people we helped over one year. Names have been changed but the facts have not. These are real people, experiencing real problems, whose lives have improved as a result of the work we have done with them.
