About the role

We are growing and developing as an organisation and want to enhance our capacity in user involvement with people with learning disabilities in line with current and future trends. We have a well-deserved reputation for delivering high quality user involvement services.

We are searching for an exceptional Learning Disability (LD) User Involvement Coordinator to work in our well-regarded learning disability user involvement services.  We are proud of the impact of our innovative and exciting user involvement projects.

This post will seek out views and opinions from the learning disability (LD) community, including from service users with a dual diagnosis (DD) of learning disability and mental health issues. It will also influence strategy and development at individual, local and national level and develop and maintain a loud and clear voice to bring about positive change for all people with a learning disability.

 

About The Advocacy Project

We help people speak up and make decisions about their health, wellbeing and social care. We’re here to make sure people across all ages and care groups can understand their rights, make effective choices about their lives and voice their concerns. Some of the ways we do this include:

  • advocacy services that make sure people can express their wishes when decisions are being made about their care or wellbeing
  • user involvement projects that help organisations improve what they offer by listening to people who use their services
  • local Healthwatch organisations, which act as health and social care champions for the areas they serve and give people a direct channel to share their feedback
  • innovative Personal Health Budget projects that allow people to access items and services to improve their wellbeing.

Our services are independent, confidential, and free to those receiving them. Together, our teams are standing up for essential rights and supporting people to have a say on the issues that matter to them.
