POhWER in East Sussex is currently looking for volunteers

Could you help people get their voices heard?

We have exciting opportunities for volunteers across East Sussex and are particularly looking for people who can offer a few hours per week in Lewes, Uckfield or Eastbourne to provide initial support for people experiencing issues with Adult Social Care or Mental Health Services.

 We offer:

  • A full programme of induction, including a 2 day initial training
  • Opportunities to shadow existing volunteers and qualified advocates to find out more about the work they do
  • Access to additional online training
  • Ongoing support and regular 1-2-1s to help you develop in your role as a volunteer
  • Work references
  • All out-of-pocket expenses reimbursed

 We are looking for:

  • Confident communicators who are happy to work with a variety of different people
  • An initial time commitment of 2 days to attend training, followed by an ongoing commitment of around 2-4 hours per week  
  • A good standard of written communication and the ability to complete feedback and referral forms (support can be provided where necessary)
  • Readiness to undertake a DBS Check
