A new role

Professionals and services focus on needs – they need needs. Over time people think solutions come from ‘them’, from ‘outside’.

Could advocacy have a role in refocusing communities on their strengths – on what they can do for themselves?

In this film Claire Nash, an advocate from Grapevine in Coventry, shows there is real value in services and communities coming together to do the things that we can’t do separately.

Engaged as an advocate for a court-related issue, Claire worked skilfully to release the ability of an Irish travelling community to help itself.
