Our advocacy priorities are drawn from the issues people bring into the network: and so the solutions and outcomes we deliver aim to address those issues at source and prevent them from occurring or otherwise limit their impact on our clients.
The advice we offer is practical and holistic, and so our advocacy solutions are similarly pragmatic.
Much of what we do aims to maximise people’s financial wellbeing or reduce the cost of living, but we also seek to improve access to essential and public services, support people to take action themselves through our campaigning work, and build a voice for communities through boosting the capability and capacity of CAB to act as agents of change in their own communities.
By tackling these challenges our advocacy and campaigning work makes a practical contribution to the following Scottish Government national outcomes:
> Communities: We live in communities that are inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe
> Economy: We have a globally competitive, entrepreneurial, inclusive and sustainable economy
> Fair Work and Business: We have thriving and innovative businesses, with quality jobs and fair work for everyone
> Health: We are healthy and active
> Human Rights: We respect, protect and fulfil human rights and live free from discrimination
> Poverty: We tackle poverty by sharing opportunities, wealth and power more equally
