Making Safeguarding Personal: What might ‘good’ look like for advocacy?

A new resource published by the Local Government Association outlines the role that advocacy can play in Making Safeguarding Personal.

Advocacy plays a critical part in safeguarding adults, both on the front line, and at a strategic level as a partner on safeguarding adults boards.

A new resource published by the Local Government Association outlines and help shape the role that advocacy can play in Making Safeguarding Personal. It offers support to those who have duties to commission advocacy and to the advocacy sector in its delivery. This in turn will support people who use services and carers.

VoiceAbility's Head of Policy and Development, Phillippa Ashcroft, and Head of Quality, Nicola Youens, worked with the authors to help to shape the resource, drawing on VoiceAbility's experience and expertise.

The resource describes what ‘good’ might look like in Making Safeguarding Personal and promote ownership of this agenda within and across all organisations.
