Sage Advocacy


Sage Advocacy is the National Advocacy Service for Older People. It also supports vulnerable adults and healthcare patients in CERTAIN situations where no other service is able to assist.

Sage provided information, support and advocacy services to almost 5,000 people in 2022 and our work on behalf of clients is independent of family, service provider or systems interests. Our team of experienced advocates is available across the Republic of Ireland and our service is free of charge and confidential. Sage Advocacy ensures that a person's voice is heard, that their wishes are taken into account and that they are assisted, in whatever ways necessary, to be involved in decisions that affect them. Our work is guided by Quality Standards for Support & Advocacy Work With Older People, a Case Management Group and a Policy & Practice Committee. Sage Advocacy is also an important source of support for a range of stakeholders with regard to the Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Acts.
