This chapter describes what advocates do and discusses what can be learned from their experience. It introduces the main groups of clients a Scottish advocacy agency will be trying to help. They are people who have mental-health difficulties, people with learning disabilities, frail older people, and a few others who will not appear on the lists of all agencies. All these cases concern individual clients. They are usually dealt with over a fairly short period and then closed.

Keywords:   Scotland, advocacy agencies, advocates, mental health, learning disabilities, older people
