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.
National Advocacy Awards
The Awards are open to anyone contributing to the field of Independent Advocacy. This includes individuals, organisations, informal groups and professionals. We don't want to hear about good practice - we want to celebrate, share and learn about outstanding people, organisations and practice.
