Welcome to POhWER

We help people who, because of disability, illness, social exclusion and other challenges, find it difficult to express their views or get the support they need. 

Our mission is to deliver high quality advocacy, information and advice services empowering people to have a voice and to make a real difference to their lives.

We are a charity and the advocacy, information and advice services we provide are free, independent and confidential.

As an independent organisation we are separate from the government, local councils and the NHS and we always put the wishes and needs of the people we work with first.
