Has been so much coverage this week. 5 live did an hour long phone this morning that was great.
well done Charles.
We do not have a Carers Advocacy service in Pembrokeshire. Princess Royal Carers Trust used to have someone who was very supportive and would help Carers who asked for this, but they have shut now,so no advocacy any more.
Councils still have to make sure you have access to advocacy, Lazydaisy: some just happen to fail to recognise the fact. Ask for one - they can't just say "we don't have that service". It's a legal duty to provide a "service user" with an advocate if requested: they cannot disadvantage the carer by not providing one (especially where there is a conflict of interests), ignoring the fact that you could be a "service user" in your own right.
I didn't know that;thank you Charles.
Well done Charles.
