EIRIOL ARE THE INDEPENDENT MENTAL HEALTH & CARERS ADVOCACY
Since 2003, Eiriol's Independent Mental Health Advocacy Service has been dedicated to supporting those suffering with mental health issues and their carers in Carmarthenshire.
Our advocacy services are free, funded by our charitable fundraising and the generous support of organisations including, Hywel Dda University Health Board, Carmarthenshire County Council and the Lloyds Bank Foundation.
We have a team of dedicated advocates backed by a board of Trustees with a wide range of professional qualifications. All our advocates are supported to achieve their National Advocacy Qualifications and as an organisation have been recognised for our excellent service delivery by being awarded the Advocacy Quality Performance Mark by the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) in April 2017.
We promote the views of our clients on a local and national level through forums and partner organisations, and actively challenge mental health stigma. Our latest statistics can be seen on the right, and our innovative “Triage, Duty and Pool” advocacy system has enabled us to meet the ever-increasing demands for our service.
We have an ongoing process of project development, aiming to address unmet advocacy needs within Carmarthenshire and beyond, including Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion.
We are actively looking for volunteers in a variety of roles within the organisation, so please contact us if you would like to explore current opportunities.
