Thank you to Julia Mulligan for agreeing funds for supporting rural communities through our doorstep approach to providing advocacy services. 
Geoffrey is looking forward to welcoming Rosemary, our new staff member, who starts Wednesday 1st March.  

The People's Fund 

We are lucky to have the support of the steering group to fund afternoon teas in the spring and summer to help us to raise awareness of our service in the Tang Hall area.

Office Hours  

Our office opening hours will be slightly reduced to 10am to 1pm for the next couple of months during our recruitment process. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  


Are you a resident of the City of York and aged 50 or over? 
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.
