The Independent Advocacy Gathering started in Cork in 2012. We have a planning group that meets regularly to plan the gatherings.

A group of people who are interested in different types of advocacy come together to learn about advocacy and share stories and ideas and develop advocacy in Ireland.

Every year we host an Independent Advocacy Gathering. We invite speakers to talk about different issues in advocacy. This event is for anyone who is interested in advocacy.

We have lots of discussions together.

We also have a network email group where we share information about advocacy. If you would like to be part of this group please email:

At our events we talk about human rights and advocacy.

We talk about law and policy and speaking up for ourselves.

The Social and Health Education Project continues to facilitate this work.
