Our Mission
Dundee Independent Advocacy Support endeavours to provide the highest standards of independent advocacy services and information by ensuring that the interests of the service users are central to decisions which affect their well-being and that they are treated with dignity and respect.

Welcome to Dundee Independent Advocacy Support (DIAS)

----------------------------------------------------

Independent advocacy offers people the opportunity to take control over their own lives by enabling them to exercise choice based on their own needs and wishes and to have their views heard and responded to.  An independent advocate helps people to find out information, explore options and decide for themselves what they want.  We never tell people what to do, or allow our own opinions to get in the way of the support we provide.  We aim to increase confidence and assertiveness so that individuals feel empowered to speak up for themselves, leading to self-advocacy.

We provide independent advocacy for people in the City of Dundee who:

  • have mental health issues
  • are over the age of 65
  • have dementia
  • have learning disabilities
  • have physical disabilities

and who

  • are unable to support themselves
  • have no one independent to support them
