Our work

Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance (SIAA) is a membership organisation responsible for promoting, supporting and advocating independent advocacy in Scotland.

SIAA is the only third sector national intermediary organisation for independent advocacy in Scotland. ‘Intermediaries’ are third sector organisations, whose members are mainly other third sector organisations that share a common interest or purpose. Part of our work is to represent and support those members, in SIAA’s case these members are all independent advocacy organisations. You can find out more about how intermediaries work and measure their impact in Evaluation Support Scotland’s ‘Understanding intermediaries’ impact‘ guidance.
