Speaking up for others

Wednesday 6th July 2.30pm to 4.30pm 2022


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.

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
