Solace Advocacy

The advocacy service at Solace was developed to provide practical support for asylum seekers and refugees accessing our therapy services. It is not a stand alone service but works in collaboration with Solace therapists to tackle the practical problems asylum seekers and refugees face, such as a housing problem or lack of legal representation, which compound mental health difficulties.

Whilst most advocacy sessions take place at the Solace offices or over the telephone, Solace advocates also help people access other services by accompanying them to appointments, such as visits to a housing office or Job Centre, and visits to MP advice surgeries.
