About us

Advocacy Services North East Wales

Supporting the residents of 
North East Wales since 2000

Advocacy Services North East Wales started as a small project in the year 2000 providing Advocacy primarily for people with ill Mental Health to residents of Flintshire. Over the years, from “Flintshire Mental Health Advocacy Scheme” we became “Flintshire Advocacy Services” as we opened up to anyone who felt they needed our support, and with our expansion into Wrexham and further afield we became ASNEW – Advocacy Services North East Wales in 2015.
