The WSQ recognises the role advocacy can play in support of meeting a wide range of its objectives.
As a diverse volunteer organisation, it is important to ensure that advocacy activities maintain the good name of the WSQ and its members. As such it is important to the WSQ that advocacy activities are constructive, proactive and solution oriented.
This policy sets out the principles, advocacy themes and implementation rules under which members of the WSQ may undertake advocacy activities.
