“My experience with CEN has been absolutely fantastic – the opportunities I have been afforded over the past few months have been wonderful, indeed I hope to continue volunteering for the charity into the future... as an advocate, I have learnt to tailor my advocacy style to different audiences. In terms of my personal development, my experience with CEN has made me all too aware of how stressful litigation can be for one’s service users, and how I need to be sensitive to this in practise.”
