The “Action on Advocacy” Workshops were held in October and November 2015. These were a series of interactive workshops held across Thurrock, in Grays and Belhus and online to ensure that the widest number of people have an input into the shaping of an Advocacy Service, of what it will comprise in Thurrock and what it will mean for the people who need to access it.
This was achieved by ascertaining the community viewpoint of what people want to see in an Advocacy Service in Thurrock, determining what is provided now. Where the gap(s) are, and what people want to see in an Advocacy Service from June 2016 onwards. From experience, we know that the most effective way of gathering and distilling input, views and feedback is through public engagement workshops in community venues. The Report is available here
