What is Citizen Advocacy?

​Citizen Advocacy is when responsible local citizens volunteer to be matched with, get to know and support a vulnerable adult* who may experience exclusion or unfair treatment and who needs help to voice their opinions, be active participants in the decisions made about their lives and become part of the local community.


Include Me's role is to create and support ​the development of Citizen Advocacy Partnerships


​If you can spare a minimum of 2-3 hours per month​ and think you would like to become a  Citizen Advocate and make a difference in the life of a vulnerable adult* living in North East Fife, please contact us.

  • Learning Disability
  • Physical Disability
  • Mental Health issues
  • Chronic Illness
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Early Onset Dementia

Covid-19 Coronavirus Response

Following the latest developments in the spread of the Coronavirus and taking into account the guidelines and directions from Fife Council, the Scottish Government and Westminster, Include Me staff have decided that we will move to working practices which minimise the risk of spreading infection within the organisation and beyond.

For the foreseeable future we will be working remotely. This is obviously an extraordinary situation which will develop and change over time. We will respond to these developments as they occur and will adapt our working practices accordingly.

Please check our website news feed or Facebook page for up to date information.
