VITAL is an independent, user led, advocacy charity.
VITAL helps people to say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests, and obtain the services they need at a time when they may feel vulnerable.
We are a user run organisation - experts by experience.
It means that we value mental health issues, and the everyday management of recovery from them as real assets to those who run and provide our services.
We believe this is important and underpins our organisational values. It means that we really do care about people being heard.
Our Independent Advocates offer free support in the community to ensure people are listened to.
Talking with an advocate can help people to work out what they want, find services and feel supported in communicating with service providers.
Based on the principles of the Advocacy Charter, the Quality Performance Mark (QPM) is a quality assessment and assurance system for providers of independent advocacy in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Reaching out to those struggling with mental ill health in the community.
Providing support & information around complaints about the NHS for both physical & mental health.
We have a specialist advocate for Moorlands View who has an understanding of Independent Mental Health Advocacy & the Criminal Justice System.
At VITAL we are passionate about ensuring people's voices are heard and that they know their rights. Have a look at our latest video, to see the difference we have made to the lives of those using our Community Advocacy service.
VITAL does not accept or expect that anyone should be subjected to discriminatory or abusive behaviour and or language. On the rare occasion that this might arise in relation to services we provide, we will terminate access to those services.
