Exciting News!! 
Older Citizens Advocacy York (OCAY) are pleased to announce that we have successfully applied to the Charities Commission to transfer to the status of a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). This means the imminent closing down of our old charity and the commencement of OCAY in its new charitable form – with the advocacy service continuing throughout. Formal notification will be sent to those with whom we have transactional arrangements, such as suppliers, membership organisations, etc, once all the formalities have been addressed. 

Our next Drop in 

Come along to see us on Tuesday 23rd January 10 to 12pm, St Oswalds Village cafe, Fulford Road.

OCAY may be able to help you by providing an advocate. This is someone who will work in partnership with you and help you to speak up for yourself. 
Our advocacy service is free, confidential and independent. Our advocates will listen to what you want and act on your behalf at all times. We put people first and treat everyone equally. 


Our free and independent advocacy service is available for all residents of York aged over 50 who feel they need our help.
