Understanding advocacy and how it can benefit the people you work with
This online session will give an overview of how our range of advocacy services in North-East England operate and have adapted to COVID-19. It is aimed at local voluntary and community organisations, rather than at individuals, statutory services or organisations from outside the North East.
In this session we will cover:
- An overview of how our advocacy services are delivered
- Myth-busting any misunderstandings about advocacy not being available, or cannot be achieved effectively remotely
- An overview of the range of our advocacy services available, who they are for, how they work, and how you can refer people to us
- An outline of the key challenges and concerns affecting our most disadvantaged communities and the individuals in need of advocacy
