Have Your Voice Heard

POhWER is a charity that helps people who, because of disability, illness, social exclusion, and other challenges, find it difficult to express their views or get the support they need.

Woking with Herts Independent Living Service and VoiceAbility, POhWER provides advocacy services to people across Hertfordshire.

These servies are free, independent, and confidential.

How Advocacy Can Help

It can often be daunting for someone to deal with big organisations such as councils, health services or housing associations when they feel they are not being heard.

An advocate can help you to: 

  • tell people what you need or want
  • understand the information and advice you receive
  • have your views heard or understood
  • support you to make informed choices about the things that affect you

What an advocate can help with

  • listen to you
  • attend meetings with you
  • write emails and letters with you
  • carry out research for you
