includeME is a community-based, voluntary organisation that provides independent citizen advocacy to vulnerable people aged 16 and over who live in North-East Fife. includeME promotes the inclusion, empowerment, and protection of some of the most vulnerable people in society.
includeME! is working to achieve this in North-East Fife by setting up one-to-one matches between volunteer citizen advocates and people with a particular need, and continuing to support, guide and encourage those partnerships to bring about positive change and benefits for both partners and the wider community.
Right now in our community, there are people who have lots of qualities to offer and share but who unfortunately experience loneliness, vulnerability and exclusion because of a vulnerability. Sometimes their hopes, dreams and basic needs may not be fully recognised.
includeME! is looking for responsible citizens to choose to give some spare time to:
• make a positive difference to the life of a vulnerable person
• voluntarily represent and protect their rights and interests
• help them face challenges, and
• encourage them to participate in their community.
We believe citizen advocacy is a unique opportunity for individuals to put their values into action on behalf of another person. Citizen advocacy can make our communities happier, safer, and more just places to live, by making one person’s life better in big and small ways. This might involve listening and talking things over, supporting someone to attend a meeting or write a letter, helping a partner consider their options for the future.
