Training

Our training programme

The Advocacy Plus training programme is designed to develop the skills of our advocates but is open to staff and volunteers from other advocacy or related services. Modest charges are made. Please contact us about multiple bookings.

The training is aimed at delegates who have experience of working with older people and wish to learn more about advocacy or who have experience of advocacy and wish to learn more about older people's issues.

Our Training Principles

  • All our advocacy work is based on absolute respect for the older person and support for the client in achieving their wishes.
  • Wherever possible our training is based around case studies drawn from the experience of our advocates, to allow exploration of the issues involved in advocacy in real life.
  • We take feedback from the people who are involved in our training to ensure the programme and delivery meet their needs. We review the programme regularly in response to the feedback we receive from delegates.
