Volunteer with us

Volunteering can be a very rewarding way to get involved with an organisation you think is important to you and your local community.

It can give you the chance to feel valued in your community, to learn new skills, make new friends, have fun and can sometimes lead to paid employment.

What roles are there?

There are many exciting and challenging roles across The Advocacy People, for example:

Volunteer Advocates (Health Complaints) - explain the NHS complaints procedure and support people to look at the options and raise the complaint. This might include supporting them to write letters, make telephone calls or attend a meeting.

Networking & Promotion - attending events (once public health regulations allow) to help raise our profile and public awareness of who we are and what we do, distributing information and checking that relevant local organisations know about us. 

Student placements - we can offer placements to meet course requirements, increase your understanding of advocacy and its impact, and to help hone and improve your skills.

Independent Visiting - supporting and befriending a child or young person in care over a period of at least 2 years to provide a stable and consistent trusted adult in their life. For more about the role and how to apply click here or complete the Expression of Interest form below.
