Action for Advocacy (A4A) Website

Sadly, Action for Advocacy ceased operations at the end of 2013. The organisation was established in 2001 as a small project called Advocacy Across London, becoming Action for Advocacy in 2004. It expanded, supporting organisations across England and Wales, becoming the advocacy sector’s umbrella body. Achievements included the development of a range of key tools and resources, in consultation with advocacy providers, such as the Advocacy Charter, Quality Standards for Advocacy Schemes and Code of Practice for Advocacy Providers. Action for Advocacy also developed a comprehensive training programme and delivered training to thousands of advocates.

One of Action for Advocacy’s key achievements and functions was the development and delivery of the Quality Performance Mark (QPM), a tool for providers of independent advocacy to demonstrate their commitment and ability to provide high quality advocacy. The Quality Performance Mark has now been transferred to the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi). Please follow the link below to find out more about NDTi’s work on the Quality Perfomance Mark: click here.

All queries relating to the QPM should be sent to: a4aqpm@ndti.org

The A4A website will remain live for the time being, to enable access to the information and resources held on its pages. Please note, however, that that the information and resources on this website have not been updated since the end of 2013 and will not be updated going forward.
