Report: Advocacy and rights during COVID-19

Valuing Voices: Protecting Rights through the pandemic and beyond, a report by advocacy organisations across the UK, has been published this week sharing the findings of advocates’ experiences during this time.

This week is also Advocacy Awareness Week, which embraces the collaboration over recent months with the theme of ‘The Power of Partnership’. They aim to recognise and celebrate the partnerships between individuals and advocates, voluntary sector and statutory sectors and all the other kinds of partnerships that ensure people have their rights upheld, and services they need. They will be publishing a range of stories, blogs and videos over the week, and this will be on social media with the following hashtags #AAW20 #PowerofPartnership #HearMyVoice.
