Advocacy and Representation
October 22 | 09:30 - 12:30FREE
About the workshop:
Advocacy undertaken by people with lived experience is important because we know best about the current failures of the system and we have unique perspectives and solution ideas. We are the people most directly impacted by the outcomes of our advocacy but when we take on representative roles, we are advocating for more than our own interests. Understanding the principles that underpin the lived experience movement and linking our advocacy to those principles adds validity to our message and ensures that our advocacy supports others in the lived experience community.
Who the workshop is for:
This workshop is recommended for anyone who wants to represent others or advocate for change.
What will be learnt:
Participants will be introduced to theoretical underpinnings and principles of lived experience movements and will be able to link their own experiences to systemic advocacy issues.
How this session fits within the broader LEDGE Project:
This is a core skills workshop, it is part of both the governance and the leadership stream and is required as part of both certificates. This workshop can also be done as a stand alone workshop at any stage.
