The Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance Annual Report 2005
The Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance promotes, supports and defends the principles and practice of independent advocacy across Scotland. This report details activities undertaken by the SIAA in 2005 including running 'advocacy awareness' training for service providers, a 'training for trainers' course, the distribution of the 'Directory of Advocacy Organisations in Scotland' and the development of the SIAA website which hosts a discussion forum to discuss dilemmas and to start discussions on advocacy in Scotland.
The report also notes the work SIAA has done with the Mental Health Division and the Elder Abuse Reference Group set up by Age Concern Scotland. This group has now become the Vulnerable Adults Alliance Scotland.
