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.


About the role

We believe everyone has the right to influence decisions affecting their lives. We are searching for an exceptional person to join our dynamic and innovative advocacy team that currently provides services to a range of care groups across seven London boroughs – Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, Hackney, Ealing, Croydon, Sutton and Wandsworth.

This role will provide independent advocacy for adults eligible for advocacy under the  Mental Health Act. You’ll also raise awareness of independent advocacy, including for people from minority ethnic communities.
