Speaking up for others course: 2pm 1 June 2021

Many of us find ourselves in situations where we need to support people in expressing themselves or speaking out.

This Zoom event will explore how we can do this more effectively and some of the barriers that we might face. It will be of interest to anyone that is concerned about equality and building more inclusive communities. Those involved in any role within advocacy, health, social, community and pastoral work will find this session to be of relevance to their work. Tuesday 1st June – 2pm to 3.45pm

The session will include:

❖ A brief history of, and background to, the development of the different models of advocacy

❖ How advocacy or supporting people in speaking up relates to our daily lives and work

❖ An introduction to the concept of informal advocacy and the various other advocacy roles

❖ Understanding how conflicts of interest arise and the importance of independent advocacy in avoiding these

❖ Working holistically to promote and protect human rights

The session will be held via Zoom and will be led by Joe Monaghan of the National Coalition of Advocacy Schemes Places cost £15 for organisations but are free for people who do not belong to an organisation or agency. To book a place, please email us at advocacynatcoalition@gmail.com
