CIT Advocacy Graduation 2016

CIT Advocacy Graduation 2016

Monday 7 March 2016

This year there were two graduating classes, “Introduction to Advocacy” and “Advanced Advocacy”.

Both of these courses were run through the partnership between ‪‎Cope Foundation‬ and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT).‬

‪‎Advocacy‬ is very important in the lives of people supported by Cope Foundation. ‬

It is so important for people to know their rights and how to speak up for themselves about what they want.

We would like to thank Dr. Margaret Linehan, Dr. Margaret O’Keeffe and Michelle Kelleher for all of their hard work as well as Dr. Barry O’Connor who presented the certificates.
