Abstract
  • The concept of advocacy has been slow in gaining acceptance in the UK. An account of the work of Advocacy Alliance is provided here by Bob Sang, its first co-ordinator, who examines all the barriers (both attitudinal and structural) that are placed in the way of any organisation seeking such a system for people with learning difficulties. The second part of this paper looks at the development of a citizen advocacy programme for people with learning difficulties. John O'Brien describes the role of the Georgia Advocacy Office and how it sets about planning and implementing methods of representing the interests of individual Georgians with special needs.
