The Advocacy Cycle
The advocacy process can be divided into stages, although in practice these will overlap. The time it takes to complete all the stages and the necessary detail will vary greatly, depending on the urgency and complexity of a particular case, the amount of information needed to be able to act, and the advocacy methods chosen.
The Advocacy cycle helps to show the route that needs to be taken when assisting someone through the issues that are affecting them. The cycle helps to clarify goals, objectives and methods of measuring success; it helps to understand risks and assumptions and helps when allocating resources and responsibilities.
The Advocacy Cycle is as follows (depending on the type of advocacy being given the stages in the cycle may vary):
This is a simplified way of how we work, as mentioned however, the stages, repetitions and integration of steps varies from case to case.
