AN ADVOCACY service has been commissioned by the Isle of Wight Council to support people with mental health difficulties.
Southern Advocacy Services, formerly the Isle of Wight Advocacy Trust, will provide support to some of the Island's most vulnerable people.
It will represent their interests and help them access services.
The council has a statutory duty to provide support from an independent advocate when decisions are made on behalf of a person who lacks the capacity to make their own choices, has no-one who can represent their interests or is subject to powers under the Mental Health Act.
