About The Advocate – News for Changemakers

The Advocate is the first online service dedicated entirely to promoting the activities of not-for-profits and charities – organisations that sometimes find their messages swamped by the deluge of competing media releases and stories.

The vision, which started in 2014, is for the charitable sector – and those with an interest in it – to have a dedicated portal to follow campaigns and news.

The Advocate is geared towards a niche audience who care about social justice issues like poverty, the foreign aid budget and health.
