About Us

At Independent Advocacy Perth & Kinross (IAPK), our advocates are independent from organisations that provide services to the people we support. We do not provide any other services other than independent advocacy, and our advocates have no close ties to family or friends of the individual. This means that we are as free as possible from conflict of interest and can freely speak up for the person.

We are committed to the individual’s voice and wishes being heard; we do not express our own view only that of the individual. Even when a person is considered not to have capacity, we still work to seek out that individual’s point of view.

Our Next Trustee…

We want to hear from you if you have a dedication to human rights and ensuring they are accessible within your local community, every day, for everyone. You do not have to have previous board experience to join, however, some experience in Education, Governance, Finance, Legal, Human Resources and/or Strategy & Development would be essential. At this time, we are particularly looking for expertise in Finance and HR.

Our next trustee would also be someone that would uphold our values, respecting that we are Partner-Led and Independent, pursuing Honesty and the Courage to advocate for our partners’ Human Rights, leading to their Empowerment.
