Volunteering for POhWER is an opportunity to support people who, due to disability or being disadvantaged, find it difficult to get information, speak up and get their voice heard. Advocates help to empower people so that they have a say and are involved in shaping their own lives.

When volunteering for POhWER we aim to make the best use of your current skills and abilities whilst helping you develop in other areas.
