Our advocacy aims to influence policy, legislative, funding and service delivery decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. Advocacy includes media campaigns, public speaking, commissioning and publishing research to promote public debate and awareness.

Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who citizens who are in need and are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their needs included in decisions that affect them
  • Defend and safeguard their rights
  • Have their voices genuinely considered when decisions are being made about them
