OCAY may be able to help you by providing an advocate. This is someone who will work in partnership with you and help you to speak up for yourself. 
Our advocacy service is free, confidential and independent. Our advocates will listen to what you want and act on your behalf at all times. We put people first and treat everyone equally. 


Our free and independent advocacy service is available for all residents of York aged over 50 who feel they need our help.
