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 various roles across The Advocacy People, for example:
Advocacy, admin, IT, service promotion and becoming a Trustee.
Specific vacancies, such as recruitment for our Board of Trustees, are advertised here:

Our approach to equality and diversity
The Advocacy People are fully committed to the elimination of unlawful and unfair discrimination and value the differences that a diverse workforce brings to the organisation.
We will not discriminate because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation or any other irrelevant factor.
We have a culture that values openness, fairness and transparency.
