EARS Advocacy Service

EARS provides independent advocacy across the Lothians.

EARS advocates are independent because they are not employed by any social work department, health board or residential/nursing care home.

Independent advocacy aims to help people ensure that their voice is heard, and give them the support they need to speak up for themselves. Advocacy can give people control over situations in their lives, safeguard their rights, and provide the information needed to make important decisions. For more about what advocacy is, and what advocates can help with, see here

In Midlothian, advocacy is available for people who:

  • are aged 60 or over, or
  • have a physical disability, or
  • have had a stroke, or
  • have an acquired brain injury.
