Community Advocates:

We have identified several specific topics which we believe deserve a voice on our Partnership, but for which no single representative community group exists. We use the name ‘community advocates’ for members who are chosen for their experience and willingness to speak up on behalf of the following:
• Equality (at most 2 advocates)
• Local business/traders (at most 1 advocate)
• Student residents (at most 1 advocate)
Community advocates are expected to bring a general understanding of the topic for which they are advocating to discussions, and also, like other members, to participate with a view to promoting the wider objectives of the Partnership.

Advocates will be elected at the NP meeting on June 20th. If you are interested in finding out more about the role, please get in touch
