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 2016/17

In 2016/17 we supported people with 56,830 separate advocacy issues and we provide services in more than 60 local authorities.

Community Advocacy Impact Report


In 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.
