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
