The Advocacy Project’s CEO, Judith Davey, says she loves the fact you can see at first hand the positive impact that our work has on people’s lives.
What do you like about The Advocacy Project?
“Hmm – so many things. I love the vibrant environment and the close connection we have with people who use our services. Every day volunteers, people who use our services, partners and commissioners come into the office to work with staff. That creates a buzzy, open and productive culture. I’m very proud of our staff. But most of all I love the fact you can see at first hand the positive impact our work has on people’s lives. That’s very special.”
What are you passionate about?
“I’m passionate about social justice and equality. Our mission about voice, rights and choice resonates deeply with me. It’s the common theme connecting my professional work at The Advocacy Project and the volunteering I do in my spare time with organisations like Consortium for Street Children.”
How does your work help people and contribute to a better world?
“In my role as CEO, I need to provide the leadership and environment in which our amazing team can do their best work, helping people bring about positive change in their own lives. Through my ambassadorial role for The Advocacy Project, I can also take the voices of vulnerable people – older people, those with dementia, learning disabilities and mental health issues – to a broader audience. This means we can raise awareness, increase understanding, and influence on both policy and practice.”
Judith has been shortlisted for a Forward Ladies national award: an inspiring programme celebrating women in leadership.
