Dunfermline Advocacy brings together local volunteers with vulnerable people, providing long and short term support, understanding and friendship to those who need it.
COVID-19 has brought about many changes for Dunfermline Advocacy, with our dedicated team working from home, supporting advocacy partnerships remotely. Our dedicated volunteer Citizen Advocates have continued to support their advocacy partners throughout lockdown.
We have adapted to using different ways to keep in touch with people according to their needs, to ensure they have access to necessary services for food, information, medical advice & prescriptions and someone to talk to during this time of isolation. Our partnerships have been enjoying trying out new ways to keep in touch since they are unable to meet up during lockdown- from Whatsapp messaging and video to Zoom!
A simple phone call has often made a big difference to someone struggling at this time.
We are looking to recruit new volunteers and are ready to accept applications. We will be running our group Preparation Course online and it would be great if you would like to join!
