The Rethinking Advocacy Group
Started to think about the current problems with advocacy and possible solutions.
Recognised that there was lots of great advocacy work going on but there was a need to consider how services could be future proofed.
Felt thinking was needed on how advocacy partners could be supported and empowered to be better self advocates.
Thought a priority should be developing a proactive model rather than just a reactive one.
Sponsored a range of pilot projects to try out different methods of delivering advocacy.
The work evolved into ‘Reshaping Advocacy’ and a Steering Group formed to take the work forward including running a conference and themed networking meetings.
The group is currently thinking about and developing plans for the next phase of the work.
