Advocates take action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, pursue their interests and obtain the services they need. Advocates work in partnership with people and take their side, promoting social inclusion, equality and social justice.

 

Advocates work directly with clients both in institutional settings and the community.

 

  • The aim of Independent Advocacy under the Care Act is to enable people who have substantial difficulty being involved in relevant Care Act processes to be supported in that involvement as fully as possible, and where necessary to be represented by an advocate who speaks on their behalf.
  • The ultimate aim is for people’s wishes, feelings and needs to be at the heart of the process.
  • The office is based in Kingswood but the role would require you to cover the Bristol area. (Driver preferred but not essential)
  • We welcome candidates from BAME communities and with disabilities.

 

Advocates must hold the Diploma in Independent Advocacy Qualification (City & Guilds level 3 or 4). People without this qualification will be appointed as Trainee Advocates and expected to undertake the Diploma (provided by the company training scheme) within 12 months of appointment.
