Policies and laws alone cannot effect long-term and sustained change. They are however a necessary first step, which must be followed up by effective implementation. Implementation does not happen organically; it must be stimulated, enforced and monitored. PolicySA's advocacy activities include engaging in high-level dialogue with policy-makers and other influential leaders on broad professional bodies' policy issues. Our advocacy work focus on:
- specific issues (e.g. quality audits, governance, codes of ethics, CPD)
- campaigns/projects that span a specific period of time
- ongoing work that addresses a broad range of issues
We work across the national, provincial and local spheres of government.
