In the coming months, Advonet and its new advocacy consortium partners will be holding two events. The first will launch the consortium and introduce changes to advocacy service in Leeds. It will be held on Wednesday 18th July.
The launch event will help to set out the new consortium’s vision. It will spell out what advocacy can do for the people of Leeds and celebrate the bringing together of Advonet, Touchstone, Age UK Leeds and SignHealth.
It will be held at the Ramgarhia Sikh Centre on Roundhay Road and will be open to the public and people who work for third sector groups in Leeds. It is free to attend and opens at 10am, finishing at 12:30pm. A light lunch will be provided.
If you are interested in coming, you can register for a free ticket on our Eventbrite event page, which is at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/advonet-advocacy-consortium-launch-event-tickets-44838844190. However, there are limited spaces available.
The second event, meanwhile, is on Wednesday 19th September. Its aim is to focus on engaging with concerned citizens, smaller groups and bigger organisations who want to work with us in boosting advocacy provision across Leeds. It will build on the success of last year’s “Strengthen the City Through Advocacy” event.
It is open to people from third sector organisations and smaller community groups, as well as other interested individuals who would like to connect with the new consortium and use advocacy to make a greater difference to more people’s lives.
We are looking for organisations and individuals to help co-organise and plan this event. If you or your organisation would like to be involved, we would love to hear from you.
If you are interested in coming to either or both events and would like to know more, please contact us. You can email [email protected] or call us on 0113 244 0606.
