National Advocacy Service
The National Advocacy Service is a free, independent and confidential service fully funded by the Citizens Information Board. NAS provides advocacy to people with disabilities over the age of 18.
This includes elderly people who have disabilities, people with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities and people experiencing mental health issues.
We have a particular remit to provide advocacy services to people who may be isolated from their community of choice or mainstream society, live in residential services, attend day services, people who may communicate differently and who may have limited informal or natural supports.
We have a team of 34 professional advocates around the country, who work directly with individuals to help ensure their voices are heard when decisions are being taken that affect their lives. Our advocates work on issues such as residential placements, accommodation, healthcare, personal finances, ward of court, and family and relationships.

Our advocates regularly do presentations in services for people with disabilities, to promote the service. If you know of a service you think would benefit from a presentation from one of our advocates, please make contact.
