The Brent Gateway Services is a new project to deliver preventative social care services and statutory advocacy to Brent residents. The project is a partnership between Age UK HHB, Harrow Mencap and Capable Communities. As part of the new Brent Gateway Services project, we are delighted to advertise 3 full-time Advocacy Officer posts.
The successful candidates will work as a team to provide a central point for advocacy services. With experience of working with and knowledge of the issues faced by vulnerable people, you will be able to directly impact the services they receive.
Core aspects of the role are to:
- Provide person-centred advocacy to vulnerable clients
- Meet clients to provide them with information, to help ensure their voice is heard, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need
- Work with and support those who lack capacity to obtain their views and wishes and involve them in the decision-making process
- Support clients at key statutory meetings, when required
