Inclusion Gloucestershire are looking for Volunteer and Advocacy Project Worker


Engaging with people is at the heart of everything Inclusion Gloucestershire does, and as a user-led organisation it is vital that both our staff and our members are supported to be fully included and reach their potential. This role sits within the Engagement team in an exciting new project, funded by the National Lottery developing Inclusion Gloucestershire’s Volunteer and Advocacy offer. The advocacy and mentoring will be aimed at disabled people and those with autism and mental ill health who are not eligible to access existing services, helping more people to reach their potential and access services by supporting them at the earliest possible stage, reducing isolation and preventing them from reaching crisis point. The team will design and deliver group sessions themed around topics such as employment, housing and independence, as well as individual one-to-one support with individually defined areas of need relating to confidence building, relationships and community access.

Job Purpose:

1) To support the design and delivery of an advocacy offer, including peer-led sessions to people with disabilities, autism or mental ill health themed around their needs, concerns, aspirations and wishes.

2) To support the design and delivery of a volunteer offer targeting both those who can add capacity to the organisation and also those who wish to volunteer with us to develop confidence and skills.
