Will I need training to become a Citizen Advocate?

By admin on August 22, 2013 in

Citizen Advocates don’t need any formal training or qualifications. We provide a Preparation Course, which is partly one-to-one with a development worker and also two group sessions usually held on two weekday evenings, one week apart.

Long-Term Citizen Advocates are also provided with information and training on specific issues or areas if they are relevant to the person they are matched with. For example some advocates have requested training on specific areas like epilepsy or communication.
