Non Instructed Advocacy for Children and Young People

Event Date: 
Wednesday, 15 May 2019

Free specialist training for advocates.

At Coram Voice we believe in making advocacy accessible to all. That’s why we have developed specialist approaches to non-instructed advocacy (NIA) for children and young people who lack the capacity to instruct an advocate.

To support colleagues from across the sector we are offering free spaces on our specialist Non-Instructed Advocacy training course. This is an opportunity for advocates to explore and overcome the challenges of implementing a robust, ethical, and skilful approach to non-instructed advocacy. Emma Robinson, our Specialist Advocate will outline effective NIA approaches and provide practical examples of non-instructed advocacy.

The training focuses on community advocacy for looked after children, care leavers and children in need. However it may also be useful for advocates working in other settings who wish to explore the broader principles of NIA.

Training date: 
Wednesday 15th May 2019 at 10:00 – 16:00.

Trainer:
Emma Robinson, Specialist Advocate for Children and Young People with Disabilities
