What We Can Do To Help You
WHAT CAN WE DO? Listen, make sure all we do is private/confidential and do it as quickly as we possibly can.
CHAT is a totally independent organisation though we may need to work in partnership with other groups to be able to support you.
We do not work for the Social Services or the NHS. This means we can support you to have a say if you are not happy with your care.
We are here to see you are given choices so that YOU can make the right decision for you.
We will never do anything against your will.
We will try our hardest to get you the result you hope for, but it is not always possible!
We need to tell you about ourselves.
We are a not-for profit organisation run totally by Volunteers who are lucky enough to have funding from HealthShape the Peoples Health Lottery group.
Our Volunteers are paid for-out-of-pocket expenses so if they need petrol money or work through their lunch hour we can arrange to pay them for it.
If you have ever thought of giving a couple of hours of your time to help an organisation we would love to hear from you.
Are you or have you ever been with the Military Services? Even if you only
signed up for 1 day!
Gosport has a big military background with many time served among us and we intend to give them our full support.
We are linked to the Veterans Outreach Support Team in Portsmouth and Combat Stress who are already sending their Veterans to us for help withtheir PIP and ESA forms, among other things.
We can get you in touch with many local voluntary groups who can support you every day and for those one off instances.
Come and chat2us.
Gosport Access Group and Disability Forum (GAGDF)
GAGDF are fully supportive of CHAT knowing how important it is for the disabled in our community.
The recent change in legislation from the Disabled Living Allowance to Personal Independence Payments has left many feeling vulnerable.
