Here is your chance to find out more, get involved and have your say about advocacy in Leeds

What is Advocacy?

“Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need. Advocates and advocacy work in partnership with the people they support and take their side. Advocacy promotes social inclusion, equality and social justice.” The Advocacy Charter 2002

Join us at our event and you can:

Find out what kinds of advocacy are available in our city

Learn about community advocacy

Find specialist advocacy services

Explore and establish new partnerships

Better understand the diverse needs of Leeds communities

Discuss the future of advocacy in Leeds


This event, presented by Advonet, brings together

* Age UK Leeds * Carers Leeds * Cloverleaf * Leeds Black Elders * Healthwatch * SARSVL * Leeds Involving People * Leeds Safeguarding Adults Board * Chapeltown Citizens Advice Bureau * Touchstone * Leeds Gate * Forum Central * Inclusion North


We welcome fellow advocacy providers, community organisations, health and social care providers and their employees alongside anyone with an interest in advocacy or health and social care in Leeds to join us. The event is for you, if you want to understand more about advocacy and explore how it can be threaded through the diverse health, social care and community support across the city.

There will also be opportunity to find out more about specific advocacy services which may be available if you want to find out more for yourself, friends and relatives or your clients.

The event will start by setting out advocacy currently on offer in Leeds before moving on to think about how a focus on supporting people to have their voices heard and their entitlements and rights respected can help people make positive changes to their lives..

Participants will then then divide up into smaller groups to look at the challenges experienced by a range of groups facing disadvantage (e.g. people with LD or MH needs, people who have experienced disadvantage.) before coming together to develop an action plan with the help of a diverse panel of experts.

If you would like to find out more, please contact Advonet on 0113 244 0606.
