Total Voice Lincolnshire (TVL)
TVL provides advocacy services for people in Lincolnshire. Advocacy is a free, independent and confidential service available to help you to understand and be fully involved in important decisions about your life.
You can speak to an advocate on the phone or email. You can visit us during one of our drop-in sessions, or you can speak to us on a ward or residential setting when we visit. We will make contact with you if you are referred to us by your social worker, care manager or health professional.
Advocacy is about helping you when you're making difficult decisions to:
- speak up to make your views and wishes heard
- think through different choices and options available to you so you can make your own decisions
- understand your rights
- represent your views if you are unable to do so yourself
We work with adults with disabilities, people who are disadvantaged or socially excluded. We work with children and young people in and who are cared for by Lincolnshire County Council to resolve issues relating to their care, welfare and circumstances. We also work with carers.
TVL is a partnership that brings together specialist services to support vulnerable adults, children and young people. Partner organisations are:
