From the end of September 2020 onwards, Advonet is now known as The Advonet Group. This involves using a slightly different logo and using different words about what they do.

They are now called The Advonet Group because they offer more than just independent advocacy. They have four unique user-led/co-led ‘satellite’ services that are part of the Group – Leeds Autism AIM, Asking You!, Leep1/Café Leep and CHANGE.

They want to promote the fact that all of them are part of the same wider group. Doing this also means that the four projects will work a little more closely together and with their main advocacy service.

The satellite services will share their knowledge and experience of autism and/or learning disabilities with their advocates. In return, advocates will share their expertise with Leep1, AIM, CHANGE and Asking You! For those services, it means:

  • Saying in online and offline publicity material that each service is part of the Advonet Group
  • Making governance of each service – Leep1 and CHANGE’s boards and Leeds Autism AIM’s Steering Group – a little more consistent

Each service will keep their current branding and logos. Their work will remain unchanged. This means that there will be no difference to how AIM, Asking You!, Leep1 or CHANGE work.
There won’t be a lot of change to the group’s branding, besides the new logo. Our website address and social media handles will stay the same. Their staff members and teams’ email addresses will remain the same too.

If you have any questions about branding or anything else to do with their new name, please email The Advonet Group at [email protected]. They will be happy to answer them.
