Total Voice Sunderland LogoTotal Voice Sunderland work across the city of Sunderland, offering a range of advocacy for people living in the area.

We provide:

  • Care Act Advocacy
  • Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA)
  • Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA)

and you can find details of each of these services below.

If you have been assessed as ‘lacking capacity’ to make specific decisions you may be able to get an advocate.

We provide the IMHA service for people who need support with their rights under the mental health act.  This page gives information about who can get support from an IMHA, and how an IMHA can support you.

Social care teams in the local authority have a duty to make sure that people are fully involved in understanding and making decisions about the care and support they need.  For people who will find it very hard to be fully involved in the care process, independent advocacy is available.
