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


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.

 

*A vulnerable adult is someone aged 16-60 who is affected by; Learning Disability, Physical Disability, Mental Health issues, Chronic Illness, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Dementia, Personality Disorder or Acquired Brain Injury.

Annual General Meeting

We had planned to hold our AGM in June but unfortunately 

*the Old Parish Centre is currently closed in response to the coronavirus crisis. Our AGM will only go ahead if the current situation improves and we are not contravening government or NHS guidelines.

Covid-19 Coronavirus Response

Following the latest developments in the spread of the Corona Virus and taking into account the guidelines and directions from 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.

We are adopting the following measures:

·         We will work from home using email and telephone calls to communicate with each other and with advocates, partners and stakeholders.

·         We will check the answering machine in the office remotely.

·         We will continue to respond to referrals and enquiries by telephone or email.

·         We are postponing the upcoming preparation course for new advocates.

·         Awareness raising activities will be limited to circulating information by email.

 

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.

 

These practices take effect from Wednesday 18th March 2020.
