The Autumn Edition of the About Advocacy Magazine is now online!

10 September 2015

In this edition of the About Advocacy Magazine you can read about Scotland’s first National Action Plan for Human Rights which has a vision of a Scotland where everyone can live with human dignity. One contribution to this is by supporting political engagement. Disabled people are significantly underrepresented in elected office; Inclusion Scotland is campaigning to increase access for disabled people in politics. Continuing on the theme of rights are two articles; one from the Mental Health Network (Greater Glasgow) on Advance Statements and the second from the Scottish Recovery Network on Rights for Life in Scotland. Check out the report on research into the impact of collective advocacy to be published in the coming weeks and read the report on the well attended and successful, Independent Advocacy: Supporting the SDS Journey conference. Finally, on the back page read about Tax Help For Older People an organisation that gives advice on a range of tax related issues.
