About this event

This is a practical online workshop on the skills of advocacy. Advocacy is about using your voice and/or giving voice to others with a view to effecting a positive change. This training is provided by the Network of Childhood Illness Organisations through funding granted through the Training Links programme of The Wheel.

It will address four key steps in planning an advocacy campaign:

  • Analysis of the landscape & deciding core objectives
  • Preparation and planning to make the best case to the right audience
  • Mobilisation – building awareness, building relationships, involving grassroots and influencing policy
  • Co-ordination – with other events, communications strategy & operational needs of the organisation

Who should attend

Staff or volunteers involved in advocacy work in organisations concerned with areas of childhood illness.
