Include Me recruits, prepares and supports responsible local people to become Citizen Advocates in North East Fife for vulnerable adults who may have a physical or learning disability, chronic illness or mental health problem.

Citizen Advocates become a spokesperson and friend who may support their partner:

  • By safeguarding their partner’s human rights and dignity
  • By spending time together, sharing activities both enjoy
  • By ensuring others treat their partner with respect and by considering their opinions
  • By helping them to become more connected with their local community.

Citizen Advocates usually provide support on a longer term basis.
