Welcome to Include Me

Advocacy not only means endorsing a cause or idea, but recommending, promoting, defending, or arguing for it.” ― John Capecci and Timothy Cage, Living Proof: Telling Your Story to Make a Difference


Welcome

Do you think everyone in North-East Fife should...

  • make informed decisions about their own lives ?
  • be connected in their local community ?
  • have their rights protected ?

 if so then Include Me would like to hear from YOU

 

Could You...

  • share your time for a few hours each month?
  • help someone express how they feel about their life?
  • help someone feel confident enough to try a new activity?
  • work out how someone with no words might find their voice?
  • share a laugh with someone who rarely goes out?
  • become a friend to someone who has no one else?

if so then Include Me would love to hear from YOU

 

 

Include Me are currently beginning a pilot project looking to provide Short Term, Issue Based Citizen Advocacy across North East Fife. The project will run throughout 2017 and hopes to be able to provide quicker advocacy support to those with specific issues. Ewan Masson is the Development Worker on the project and is currently beginning the process of building up a bank of volunteers who will be able to be quickly matched with someone in order to support them through their particular situation. Once the issue has been concluded the volunteer then withdraws from the partnership until another referral is received that they can help with.

Long Term Citizen Advocacy will continue to be provided as always but it is hoped that the short term project will allow us to help more people in immediate need while still maintaining the principles of Citizen Advocacy. For more details about volunteering or how to refer someone to this project please call Ewan on 01334 656242 or email ewan.masson@includeme.org.uk

​Our conference was a great success with hugely positive feedback from delegates and participants.

​Include Me would like to thank everyone who participated in presentations, workshops, the panel discussion and other aspects of the day. Without their help and support, the event would not have been the success it was.
