Becoming an Advocate

People become advocates in different ways and for different reasons. Most people start as volunteers, although there is now a City & Guilds level 3 certificate and diploma in Independent Advocacy (Launched 1st April 2009)

People may start as a volunteer or paid advocate. They may be in a generic or a specialist advocacy post. Some people come from other helping professions such as social work, counselling or interpreting services, others may have had experience using advocacy services and/or come from a service user background with an understanding of the system(s).
