seAp does not deliver statutory advocacy services in Oxfordshire but our specialist Military Advocacy Service (mAs) is available in the county, providing support to Armed Forces veterans and their families.

We may also accept spot-purchased advocacy referrals for clients currently located in Oxfordshire, or for Oxfordshire residents currently located in one of seAp's service areas.

Military Advocacy

When military personnel are discharged from the services they can find it hard to access the services and support they need to begin and maintain a new life in the civilian community.

We believe that high quality, person-centred advocacy can help veterans and those in transition from military to civilian life get support from local, regional and national agencies and service providers to help them improve their quality of life.

We are able to support veterans in many ways but often clients approach us with issues around accessing benefits, housing, and NHS treatment both for physical and mental health issues. However there is a wide range of ways in which we help veterans according to the issues that they have going on in their lives when they approach us. We work with them to challenge decisions or help them put across their point of view, signpost to other agencies and give them information so that they can make informed choices about their life moving forward.

Our advocacy service can also support you, or someone you know, if you are in prison or detained under the mental health act.

How can we help you?

Our Military Advocacy Service has been running in the Thames Valley area since 2013 and was funded by The Royal British Legion from 2014-2016. It is now part funded by the Chancellor using LIBOR funds. Our advocates have a military background themselves so understand what it is like to come out of the services and make that transition to a new life.

If you would like to talk to someone about the problems you are facing adjusting to civilian life, or if perhaps there are issues which you face as a veteran, you can get in touch with us to find out more about what we offer at military@seap.org.uk

If you live in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire or Berkshire you can get one-to-one advocacy support from our local trained advocacy team either via the telephone or by making an appointment to see an advocate.

You can contact our advocacy team by telephone, email to military@seap.org.uk or by using our online enquiry form.
