Community Advocacy News
CIICA - still growing! This is our space for shared news and here are just a few to start us off. People told us that they are keen to share news and information, so we don't "reinvent the wheel!".
We welcome short items here with a link to your site – and we will be providing more space for stories about successful advocacy too. Help us to make this an interesting and exciting space! Please send your brief contribution to email@example.com . We look forward to hearing from you.
