Change that leads to better lives

What is advocacy?

For Advocacy Awareness Week 2023 we went back to basics and surveyed 80 people to find out what they really think advocacy is.

There were a wide range of responses from:

  • Advocates
  • Advocacy providers
  • People who have accessed advocacy, their families and friends
  • Self-advocates
  • Commissioners of advocacy
  • Others who work alongside advocates

The following five short films share some of their responses:
