—Press Release—

Investors in People is delighted to award The Advonet Group, a Leeds-based independent advocacy charity, We invest in people, standard accreditation.

It means principles and practices around supporting people are in place and everyone understands how to use them to make work better!

As the leading provider of advocacy in Leeds, The Advonet Group aim to make people’s voices heard and ensure that their rights are upheld. They also have inclusion projects that are co-led by and run for autistic adults and/or adults with learning disabilities.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate The Advonet Group. Being accredited with We invest in people is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places The Advonet Group in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.

A great honour

Commenting on the award, Philip Bramson, Chief Executive, said: “It is such a great honour for us to retain our standard accreditation. This recognises that we put our trust in the people who help people to be heard, from our staff team to volunteers and trustees.”

We believe that the success of your organisation begins and ends with people. If we make work better for everyone, we make work better for every organisation. And if we do that… we make society stronger, healthier and happier.

The award runs from 2022 to 2025. It follows on from the Investors in People Standard accreditation given to The Advonet Group in 2019.
