Health Information & Advocacy

Cairde provides a Health Information and Advocacy Service from our Dublin and Balbriggan centres. Both of these also operate remotely.

Our Health Advocacy Officers do the following:

  • Understand our clients’ needs and wishes.
  • Help clients make decisions by giving advice.
  • Support clients in claiming what they are entitled to.
  • Speak up or negotiate for clients when needed.
