Central Advocacy Partners was formed in April 2011 by the merging of Advocacy into Action and Quality Action Group.
Historically both organisations have their roots in campaigning and supporting individuals affected by the introduction of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 and supported a large number of individuals with learning disabilities transition to community resources following the closure of the Royal Scottish National Hospital in 2002.
