An exciting opportunity has arisen for a part-time Secure Services Advocate to join our Fareham Secure Services team working on our Advocacy contracts in the areas of Fareham.

If you have ever supported a family member or friend at a difficult meeting – if you have supported them to be listened to or have their voice heard - if you have challenged decisions made about them you have been an advocate!

It would be great if you have worked in advocacy, or similar role before, in a health, social care or voluntary setting but not essential. We need people who are first and foremost good communicators with a passion for supporting vulnerable people to have a voice.

In this role you will be supporting a wide range of vulnerable adults often with profound and multiple needs. You will need to have a flexible attitude and must be comfortable handling highly sensitive information whilst able to work well independently and confidently on behalf of others. Time management skills will be required and you will need to be computer literate. A full induction and training schedule will be offered as well as peer mentoring and support from the Secure Services team.

Because of the nature and location of the role, applicants must live within the area; have a full driver’s licence and access to their own transport. . Travel expenses will be paid dependent on location.
