Advocacy Awareness Week 2021
This week is the 4th annual Advocacy Awareness Week, where we celebrate and raise awareness of the benefits of independent advocacy. The theme of the week is #AdvocacyInAction.
At Advance we're passionate about empowering people to have their voices heard, and for some advocacy is an essential tool to make that happen. Throughout the week we'll be sharing accessible information about what an advocate is and does, and how advocacy can benefit everyone.
We're encouraging everyone to take time this week to talk about advocacy, what it could do for you and how you could access it. Why noteexplore self advocacy by finding a local self advocacy group here, or sharing a story of how advocacy has help you with us at CustomerEngagement@advanceuk.org ?
The Advance Customer Collective is a great place for people who draw on our services to practice self advocacy, sharing their views and wants on the issues that matter to them. The next session takes place online this Friday 5th November at 11am. See the link above for details of how to join us.
