Independent Advocacy Principles, Standards & Code of Best Practice

This document sets out the principles, standards and code of best practice that underpin good independent advocacy practice. It has been developed to be used across Scotland, to ensure that independent advocacy is being delivered consistently and is of the highest possible standard.

SIAA has also published an Easy Read version of this document.

The companion document to the ‘Principles’ is Independent advocacy in action’ which provides case studies that put ‘flesh on the bones’ of what independent advocacy looks and feels like, and demonstrates how the ‘Principles’ should be effectively woven through organisational policy and day-to-day working practices.
