Advocacy means supporting somebody to speak up and be listened to, ensuring their views and wishes are heard and taken seriously. Advocacy can enable people to become more involved in important decisions about their health and social care.
Our Advocates help people in the community who have difficulty with communicating their thoughts, needs and wishes. They may also face difficulties with making decisions about things such as how or where they are cared for.
Advocacy can support people to understand their rights, their options, and enable the person to make an informed decision. We help people to live the lives they want to live.
We provide high quality and totally free advocacy support across the North of England that is completely independent of Health and Social care services.

DanceSyndrome is an inclusive award-winning North-West dance charity led by dancers with learning disabilities.
DanceSyndrome believes that everybody belongs and that people with learning disabilities have skills and assets which can contribute to and inspire an equitable civil society.
DanceSyndrome was created in response to the determination of Jen Blackwell, a dancer with Down’s Syndrome who wanted to share her passion for dance and get the world dancing.
She wanted to engage with other dancers, to lead workshops, to choreograph and deliver performances and inspire others to believe in themselves. Supported by her parents Jen spent 10 lonely years searching for opportunities to train to become the community dance worker she sought to be.
Established in 2009 as a limited company, DanceSyndrome became a charity in 2013. Under the current Managing Director, the charity has experienced an exponential increase in demand both regionally and nationally. Using dance as a vehicle for positive change, our vision is to empower learning-disabled individuals through inclusive dance.
All activity is led by a Dance Leader with learning disabilities supported by a professionally trained Dance Artist. Using a co-production model, DanceSyndrome delivers weekly community workshops and training for the core company. On demand the dancers regularly engage in performances, training, university seminars, conferences and we are developing and piloting a social replication model.

- Shine Coaching
Shine Coaching is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that offers life coaching sessions to men in Lancashire over the age of 18 who experience anger issues. We offer sessions over the phone to our clients, making it more accessible, whilst also reducing travelling costs for our clients. As a CIC with limited funds, we can then spend more funding on client contact time, maximizing the resources we can devote to those who need it. We have built relationships with community agencies who have direct and indirect (through partners, for example) contact with men. We have received referrals through agencies but also direct referrals from men themselves. Coaching works with where the person is now and where they would like to be. We work with men to identify their goals around reducing anger, and often, their other identified goals cascade into reducing their anger too. As an average, we offer between 6-8 sessions, but more can be negotiated. This flexibility is important to us. We offer our sessions over the phone for various reasons; we know that men are more likely to access treatment if it’s easier to do so; life coaching as a profession has been the pioneer in over the phone work; to cut down on overheads; accessible and easy to set sessions and means we can reach people we wouldn’t usually be able to, including those who identify as agoraphobic.

We Be Kids is a new start up project in 2021 that aims to bring online inspiration to families so they can confidently take part in offline activities that boost their wellbeing.
At We Be Kids we follow our 1,2,3,4,5 model:
- We have 1 main aim- to help boost the wellbeing of children and families.
- We believe that positive wellbeing can be described by 2 main factors- being healthy and feeling content.
- We believe that making connections is key to wellbeing- 3 connections- in particular; connections with Nature, connection with community, and connection with ourselves.
- In order to help people boost their wellbeing we offer resources in 4 specialist areas; storytelling, nature art, nature activities and yoga and mindfulness.
- By engaging with We Be Kids children and families will be actively living the 5 ways to wellbeing: Get Active, Be Mindful, Think Community, Keep Learning and Practice Kindness.
We Be Kids is founded and run by Danny English and AnneMarie Trevena. Between them they have over 40 years experience working around the world in the fields of education and wellbeing.
