Upholding rights and valuing voices: Advocacy principles for coronavirus and beyond

14 September 2020

Those of us who already found it harder to have our voices heard have suffered greatest in the pandemic.

Advocacy principles

These new principles set out the advocacy sector’s shared vision for advocacy in coronavirus and beyond

Advocacy can help people get the care and support they need and deserve. That’s never been more important. It’s those who already found it harder to have their voices heard who have suffered most from the coronavirus restrictions we have all faced.

The advocacy sector has come together to make sure we play our part in tackling these health inequalities. Together, we’ve agreed shared principles we will all follow to protect people’s rights and amplify their voices, during coronavirus and beyond.

Help us spread the word and let us know what you think by using #advocacyprinciples in social media. If you would like your organisation to endorse these principles, then please contact
