EARS has been providing independent advocacy to people in Edinburgh and the Lothians since 1999.

At EARS, we will:

  • assist and support people to speak up
  • ensure that people who cannot speak up for themselves have their voices heard
  • provide information that people need to ensure that they can make informed choices and decisions
  • assist people to gain control over your situations and lives
  • protect people's rights

EARS also strives to raise awareness of the role of independent advocacy and the benefit advocacy can have in improving people’s outcomes/lives.

For those using the service, EARS will be ‘on your side and by your side‘.
