CARE CAMPAIGN ADVOCACY SERVICE FOLLOWS THE CODE OF PRACTICE FOR ADVOCACY
Care Campaign Advocacy Service is a independant organisation. Our volunteer advocates have walked in your shoes. We want to help support families and family carers. Here at CCAS we understand you may just need like minded people TO LISTEN and who understand. We have first hand experience of loved ones in care homes and understand the emotional toll this can sometimes take on a family member and/or family carers. We work to Empower, Enable and to Increase your confidence. Here at CCAS we value everyone as being uniquely knowledgable about themsleves and who are therefore entitled to express their views and to have these views taken into account. If you just need someone to talk to or require support in a official capacity or /and be accompanied to meetings, please get in touch via our CONTACT page and one of our advocates will get straight back to you. If you are worried about a elderly person alone with no family support please get in touch and talk to us.
Do you have what it takes to become a valued volunteer Advocate? If so please contact us on the Contact Us section.

"People don't always need advice. Sometimes all they really need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand them"
Jayne Connery Founder - Care Campaign for the Vulnerable
‘’After an incredibly long and exhausting battle with Social Services, they have finally agreed to pay the top up for Mum to move from a first floor to a ground floor room. It took the local MP - Kelly Tolhurst, Jayne Connery (CCAS) an excellent OT, Jarmans Solicitors and many months of 'not giving up' ... with a mountain of paperwork, emails and numerous frustrating phone calls ... but it appears we are finally there’’
’’ Thank you so much CCAS for all your support’’.
‘’Thanks to Jayne Connery who has held my hand (figuratively speaking) for the last 4-5 weeks, while I navigated the very difficult world of "Local Authority Care / Elderly Social Services" for my mum who has dementia’’.
‘’This week they moved my Father to a much larger room. All sorted out now. Thank you CCAS!’’
Thank you again CCAS for all your help’’.
‘’ I can’t thank you and CCAS enough for guiding me through. Your help has been inspirational’’.
‘’Thank you, CCAS gave me confidence to deal with problems in my Mum's care home. What you are doing is amazing. Not everyone has the experience or know how to deal with the system. To be still doing all you are doing , even though your mum is now safe, is amazing’’.
’’Your great work continues your passion, determination, and professionalism is outstanding. A true visionary and champion in the field of Dementia, your work will lead to a greater understanding and way of thinking not only for the vulnerable but also for the carers who are often sadly forgotten about, in the world of social care‘’
''I can't thank CCAS enough, truly. Not feeling alone and the feeling of hoplessness, you've been a life-saver!''
‘’Last year my 90 year old Grandmother was neglected by the persons responsible for providing her with “care”. This preventable neglect left her with many injuries and resulted in her being hospitalised for over five weeks. The providers of the care were not forthcoming with answers and extremely dismissive, uncaring and at times quite aggressive. This left us feeling helpless as a family and not knowing where to turn. This is where Jayne and Care Campaign...stepped in giving us the support and advice we so desperately needed. Eventually Social Services did find the care provider had neglected my Grandmother. I don’t think we would have got this outcome without Jayne’s guidance, care and knowledge and for that, we will be forever in her debt’’.
''In life it's always easy to walk on by - especially if you believe an occuranc has no impact on you personally...enter Jayne Connery and CCAS. Not one to simply stroll on past, here's a lady who wants to help people and improve their lives. jayne's passion and conviction shines through as she workd tirelessly to help make life better for people living with dementia ad their familes/carers. Her mission to have safety monitoring in all communal areas of dementia care/nursing homes is a fantastic project and one i hope she wins. Sharp, driven and tenatious, Jayne reminds me of all the good that people can create when they have the mind to... Three cheers for Jayne and good luck... the best way to prepare for the future is to take care of the present.''

Heledd Wyn (Estate Planning, Long Term Care & Asset Protection (Solicitor and TEP) and Trustee of BRACE Alzehimers UK)
’’Thank you much for all your help and guidance CCAS ... invaluable. We got there in the end’’
'' Thank you for your advice Care Campaign for the Vulnerable. I know this will improve things in my Mother's care home and I know where you are, should i need further advice or help.''
''I was at breaking point and agreed to help from Jayne Connery at CCAS. I can't believe the difference it made having Jayne there as my advocate. I would recommend anyone who is having problems in the care sector to seek their advice. Thank you CCAS for being beside me. With guidance and support I had confident to put my point across and to actually be heard. I can't thank you enough for the help you have given me . I will be forever grateful.''
