Case Studies

Advocacy reaches out to some of the most marginalised and disadvantaged sections of the community, people that formal services and systems can overlook: People who may be isolated in their own home, care homes or hospitals; or who lack confidence to speak up because they have been ignored or abused in the past; or lost faith in services; or are unaware that services and support exist.

This page features case studies that give examples of the difference advocacy makes and the types of organisations that provide advocacy.

If you have any advocacy case studies that you would like to share, please email them to us.
