"Policy advocacy refers to advocacy tactics, strategies and initiatives which target changes to policies and legislation."
These advocacy initiatives seek to establish new policies, improve existing policies or challenge the development of policies that diminish resources and opportunities for vulnerable groups of people such as children and youth. Policy generally refers to 'social' policy. Policy advocacy usually seeks to engage various sectors of the government which includes: public servants, bureaucrats, political appointees, elected officials and legislators. All policy advocacy should be generated by case and 's' systems advocacy.
In our collaborations with the Connect Network we are going to be a part of Policy Advocacy initiatives and this hopefully will effect more communities than just Fisantekraal.
