Full Description of Organisation

We work with people from all walks of life and have already supported thousands of the most  disadvantaged and marginalised people in our communities, helping them to have their voices heard and their choices respected by those that are making decisions about their future.


Since 1999, we have developed a high-quality model of advocacy which ensures the most vulnerable members of our communities have the same rights and opportunities as their fellow citizens.


We believe that everyone has the same right to be heard, be in control of making choices, and to be safe from violence and abuse. Our services are free, confidential and non-judgmental. Our approach is focused on empowering individuals in making decisions, promoting independence as much as possible.


Our Vision

Everyone will have access to high quality, independent advocacy.


In April we were awarded the Advocacy Quality Performance Mark (QPM) from the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi). 


"It was clear from the QPM assessment that advocates are getting great outcomes for people and having a significant impact. As such, this remains an important area of focus for the organisation.”

Our Purpose

To support and empower people to have a voice 


“Swan’s Advocacy services are highly person centred and the ethos of supporting self-advocacy and always being person led runs through the entirety of the organisation.


Whilst compassion and humanity aren’t strictly QPM standards, it’s so nice to get a sense of both of these qualities coming through in case files and reports.”

Our Mission

To be a high quality, influential advocacy provider and model of good practice


“Throughout the entire QPM assessment the clarity of purpose that Swan have as an organisation, came across really strongly. Their in-depth understanding of the advocacy role and the aims of the organisation resonates at all levels and impacts in a variety of ways; from infrastructure, to management support, to case recording and goes a long way in ensuring that the advocacy delivered is of an excellent quality.”
