Invitation to Community & Voluntary organisations to take part in research on public funding and advocacy

The research commissioned by The Advocacy Initiative will investigate the link between public funding and social justice advocacy.

The Advocacy Initiative is interested in learning how public funding influences the practice of advocacy, be that supportive, restrictive or neutral and are looking for examples, with as much evidence as possible.

It also hopes to look at ways in which the state or its agencies have used funding to promote advocacy, lobbying or campaigning by voluntary and community organisations; or where it may have used its authority to restrict the ability of voluntary organisations to undertake advocacy, lobbying or campaigning.

To be part of the research, please contact: Brian Harvey at or call him on 01-490 3039. For more information click here.
