Quality Standards and Code of Practice
Quality Standards for Advocacy Schemes and The Code of Practice were developed in response to the Advocacy Charter. Thousands of copies have been circulated nationally.
The Action for Advocacy (A4A) Quality Standards for Advocacy Schemes are evidence based quality standards. They are an essential tool for developing and maintaining quality. They are the only nationally recognised generic quality standards specifically developed for the advocacy sector.
The Code of Practice is a set of guidelines for advocates aimed at providing clarity, support and boundaries for their practice. It offers a clear description of what is and is not expected of an advocate in their day to day work with service users.
