Because we love advocacy

Advocacy is one of the best things in the world. 


It makes a difference to individuals, communities and society by ensuring people are heard and fully participate. 


We believe it is time to celebrate the difference the sector makes and shout about outstanding practice, people and organisations.  These awards recognise excellence within advocacy and congratulate exceptional contributions to the field of advocacy.  They are open to anyone involved in the advocacy sector.
