Ceartas is a free, independent advocacy and information service available to adults in East Dunbartonshire. We support people to have the confidence to speak up for themselves and make their voice heard. People are at the heart of the organisation, shaping the way the service is run.
Independent Advocacy is a way to make a person's voice stronger and to give them as much control over their lives as possible. Advocacy workers do not make decisions for a person. Independent advocacy will help a person get the information they need to make good choices, and support them to express themselves clearly. We are independent of any other service provider like Social Work or NHS.
