AdvoCard is a service user-led, independent advocacy organisation. Our services are primarily for people with experience of mental ill-health or problematic substance use in Edinburgh. We provide opportunities for people to participate more effectively in decisions that affect all aspects of their lives.

    • Individual advocacy – trained volunteers and paid workers assist people around the wide range of issues that affect their lives.  AdvoCard has offices serving both community-based service users, as well as hospital inpatients.
    • Collective advocacy – AdvoCard supports groups of people who use mental health services. The group members support each other, as well as campaigning on common issues.
