What do we mean: ‘Advocacy in Reading?’ The next Reading Advice Network (RAN) forum on 26 September 2018, plus AGM
The forum will begin with a presentation by Healthwatch Reading about statutory advocacy, how it has developed, and how to access different types. This will be followed by group discussions on the following topics:
- What are the types and scope of unofficial/community/non-statutory advocacy offered and what would help improve services?
- What and where are the gaps and issues getting in the way of advocacy services?
RAN’s aim is to support all types of advocacy in Reading, and to produce both a forum report and an Advocacy Directory. You and your organisation does not have to provide advocacy services to attend, or be a RAN Member.
The Forum will be preceded by RAN’s formal AGM:
- Refreshments from 9.15am
- AGM from 9.30am
- Forum from 10.00am to 12.00pm.
See RAN’s website for further information and to book your place.
