Who are The Advocacy People?
The Advocacy People believe in a society where;
people feel in control of their lives and are confident to speak up and
people who can’t speak up for themselves have someone in their corner to speak for them.
It is our mission to:
help anybody that needs independent support to speak up
deliver quality and innovation in advocacy through our practice
improve people’s lives individually and collectively through putting their case to policymakers
People are at the heart of what we do. Anyone can feel powerless and unable to speak up when faced with a difficult situation. Anyone should have access to an advocate
People matter. In an equal society, decisions about people’s lives must be made fairly, involving the person as far as possible
People make the difference. If our staff are happy at work, they will be effective at work
People should be heard at every level of policy and decision-making. We work hard to make this happen
As the law has changed to include other rights to advocacy, we have changed too. We are experienced and skilled in all the advocacy services that must be provided by law.
But 25 years on, advocacy is still only a right for certain people in certain situations.
There is a lot more work to do.
The Advocacy People
Your voice deserves to be heard.
