A briefing for services about the particular issues affecting women who are homeless, and what sevices can do to respond to their needs. Includes a resource list and details of specialist agencies.
This course will teach delegates what advocacy is, how to be aware of and develop people’s own style with the legal framework in mind. It will enable delegates to understand when they should and should not be the person to offer advocacy, and where they should go when they are not the most appropriate person to offer advocacy support. The course encourages strong reflection and self-awareness to ensure individual styles are effective.
Who is this course for?
- Managers and frontline staff from any homeless service
- Staff from other sectors who have contact with vulnerable people who may require advocacy support

On completion of this course you will:
- Be aware of what advocacy is in a professional capacity

- Understand your own personality style and how this can impact on effective advocacy skills
