Borders Independent Advocacy Service (BIAS)
Independent advocacy is a way to help people have a stronger voice and to have as much control as possible over their lives.
We can help you to get the information you need to make choices and support you to put your views across to others.
- listen to you
- help you choose what is best for you
- support you at important meetings
- be on your side
- safeguard your rights.
