Abstract

Purpose

Several leading agencies in Korea are interested in citizen advocacy as one way of supporting people with learning disabilities. Therefore, several social welfare organisations require citizen advocacy guidance. This study aims to propose a logic model in the Korean context through responses from leading practitioners.

Design/methodology/approach

The logic model was explained to the middle-level practitioners of five community inclusion centres for disabled people who were leading the way in implementing citizen advocacy. After completing a form, the logic model was constructed through analysis.

Findings

Resources, activities, outputs, outcomes and impact that constitute the logic model framework were addressed. These contents are related to those using and supporting citizen advocacy, such as people with learning disabilities, their families, citizen advocates, service agencies and communities.

Originality/value

The logic model of citizen advocacy was constructed by reflecting the Korean context; thus, laying the foundation for implementing citizen advocacy nationwide.
