COVID 19 Update – We are open

As we all start to prepare for the possible reopening of services and some more movement around the city we are looking at ways that we can best meet your needs.

In line with Government guidelines for Covid19 we are still not conducting face to face meetings in our Leith Walk office. We are currently putting risk assessments in place to support people to attend outside appointments such as Psychiatrist / GP appointments, housing and Social Work, as and when these begin again.   

All our services at AdvoCard are still open though and continuing to accept referrals. Our staff are currently working remotely, providing advocacy via telephone, email and video conferencing through Google Meets, where possible.

If you would like to refer someone or just get in touch to ask a question then please do so –
