Training is free of charge for anyone wishing to volunteer as an advocate or trustee for A Voice for You but other organisations are charged £10 per person per session.

In addition to this we provide Assertiveness training.   We also arrange for advocates to attend training provided by Social Services. This includes Protection of Vulnerable Adults training which is important for all advocates.  Other courses include bereavement and loss, epilepsy, autism and aspergers.
