Compass Recovery College – Advocacy Training

Tuesday 28 August 2018

Compass Recovery College are offering a training session on advocacy.

Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their voice heard on issues that are important to them.
  • Defend and safeguard their rights.
  • Have their views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives.

Advocacy is a process of supporting and enabling people to:

  • Express their views and concern.
  • Access information and service.
  • Defend and promote their rights and responsibilities
  • Explore choices and options.

An advocate is someone who provides advocacy support when you need it. An advocate might help someone access information or accompany someone to meetings or interviews, in a supportive role. An advocate may also write letters on someone’s behalf, or speak in situations where someone feels unable to speak on their own behalf.
