What is Advocacy?
Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need. Advocates work in partnership with the people they support and take their side. Advocacy promotes social inclusion, equality and social justice.Make a Referral

Who are ASNEW?
Supporting residents of
North East Wales since 2000
The Flintshire Mental Health Advocacy Scheme (FMHAS) began in 2000 in a small office in Mold. Throughout the years we have changed our name through Flintshire Advocacy Services to Advocacy Services North East Wales (ASNEW). The service is managed by a Board of Trustees, with the day to day management of the organisation and its staff being the responsibility of the Service Director and Service Manager.
In 2021 we celebrated 21 years working with and for the people of North East Wales
