Find an Advocate

Advocates provide a free service and can assist you to resolve your complaint about a health or disability service.

An advocate initially assists by listening to your complaint and giving you information about your rights and options for resolution.  

The advocate can then support you to express and try to resolve your concerns directly with the health or disability service provider. 

You can contact an advocate by free phone/fax or by email

Free Phone: 0800 555 050
Free Fax: 0800 2 SUPPORT / 0800 2787 7678
Email: advocacy@advocacy.org.nz
