BME Advocates

Asist is a well established Advocacy service which covers the whole of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent; it has been in operation for the past 17 years. Asist provides a range of Advocacy services to people with learning disabilities, physical/sensory disabilities and/or mental health needs; Asist is also contracted to provide Independent Mental Capacity Act Advocacy (IMCA) and Independent Mental Health Act Advocacy (IMHA).

Asist recognised that there were a large number of people from Black and Ethnic Minority communities who were not accessing advocacy services. Therefore in early 2009 they established a BME Advocacy Project through funding from Stoke-on-Trent City Council and NHS Stoke on Trent. The BME Project provides advocacy throughout Stoke on Trent.

BME literature is available for service users in 8 community languages
