About The Advocacy Project
We help the most marginalised and vulnerable people in London make effective choices about what happens in their lives. We also support them to speak up and help improve important services we all need. We want to make sure people across all age and care groups – including learning disability and mental health – can:
- voice their concerns
- understand their rights
- make effective choices about what happens in their lives
We do this through advocacy services which support people individually, and user involvement projects that help organisations improve the services they offer.
We’re really excited to be working with Hackney Council to offer advocacy in the local community and we’re recruiting to key positions.
About the role
The Advocacy Project is the lead provider of advocacy services in Hackney (statutory and non-statutory). We subcontract the delivery of non-statutory advocacy to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the borough. This is called the advocacy network. The intention is to build the capacity of the SMEs to deliver statutory advocacy over time, and to develop alternative forms of advocacy to enable people and communities to advocate for themselves and others.
The purpose of this role is to:
- assess and build the capacity of the SME advocacy network member organisations to deliver quality advocacy across the diverse communities of Hackney
- work with SMEs to identify and develop new models of advocacy and build the capacity of communities to self advocate
- develop tools and resources to support self advocacy
