Description

Ceartas are delighted to invite you along to our Conference, Aye Me: Advocacy Putting People at the Heart, in East Dunbartonshire.

Aye Me is an opportunity to explore the work of Ceartas and to consider the unique approach of the organisation in involving individuals at the heart of decision making.

The day will be a mix of speakers and workshops giving all attendees the opportunity to consider ways in which they can be involved or to reflect on involvement in their own organisation.

Ceartas is a small dynamic charity that is rooted in East Dunbartonshire. Our focus is ensuring that people regardless of their circumstances or diagnosis are informed and have access to independent advocacy ensuring that all are included at the heart of decision making from case reviews to strategic planning. Our services of advocacy, information and the promotion of user involvement are open to all adult care groups. We wish to continue to progress with people at our heart ensure that they have the power to have their voice heard and exercise real choice in their lives.


Our conference supports that aim with a variety of speakers and interactive workshops.

Conference speakers include:

John Loughton - Dare2Lead

Susan Manion - Health & Social Care Partnership

Cathy Asante from the Scottish Human Rights Commission


Workshop topics include-

  • Using an inclusive approach: exploring more about Non-Instructed advocacy and how advocacy can support individuals who may have difficulty in communicating their views.

  • Being involved in service delivery: considering how people can be more involved in the services they receive or how services involve individuals in planning.

  • Knowing Me: a workshop considering how individuals can tell their own story.

  • Evidencing the Impact: This workshop will explore the value of involving people in the delivery of services and look at how we evidence the impact of what we do.
