The Learning Disabilities POhWER Advocacy service commenced on the 1st October 2015. We have been working closely with local organisations and Social Services to build links, hold drop in services and awareness raising sessions throughout the Social Work teams in Camden.

The advocate has engaged in a substantial amount of community engagement with local services and providers to ensure that all services/service users are now aware that we are providing this service and that we will be having a strong presence in the community and meeting the needs of more service users.

We offer the following services in Camden:

  • Community Learning Disability Advocacy Service
  • Independent Health Complaints Advocacy for people who wish to make a complaint about treatment provided under the NHS. For more information about how our Independent Health Complaints Advocacy Service can help you please see our London Independent Health Complaints Advocacy Service page.
