EASS recognise that some of their service users will require the support of a lay advocate in order for them to understand the advice they are given. Due to their partnership with VoiceAbility, EASS are able to secure the help and support of a trained advocate who is able to provide one to one support for individuals with a learning difficulty or disability.
