Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed individual to join our highly regarded Specialist Advocacy team.

If you have a strong commitment to empowering and upholding the rights of people with a wide range of conditions, you are a people person with the ability to engage with a varied client group and you can write high quality reports and documents, you will do well in advocacy!

If you have a background or qualification in independent advocacy that’s ideal, but it’s not essential and we will provide you with all the training and support you need to learn on the job. 

As a Paid Representative you will be working with a variety of vulnerable people, some with multiple and complex needs.  You will provide representation and support to people who are subject to the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS) and who do not have a family member or friend that can undertake this role.

The role involves visiting clients on a regular basis in care homes and hospitals to support them to understand and exercise their rights in relation to the authorised DOLS. 

This includes supporting people to request a review of the authorisation, access complaints procedures and/or appeal to the Court of Protection.
