Service Team Volunteer

13th December to 20th December
VoiceAbility are looking for someone to help raise awareness in your local community on the services VoiceAbility provides.
This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central

Who we are?
We provide advocacy and involvement services so that people are heard in decisions about their health, care and well-being. We’ve been supporting people to be heard in decisions about their health, care and wellbeing for over 40 years. We’re an independent charity and one of the UK’s largest providers of advocacy and involvement services.
What are we looking for? 
This role is ideal for people who already have a connection to their community or would like to build one.
These are the skills we are looking for:

empathy with people
ability to maintain confidentiality at all times
ability to act as a representative of VoiceAbility
good communication
respect for difference and diversity
non-judgmental attitude
organisational skills

What would you be doing? 
VoiceAbility’s service team volunteer role is a varied role that provides support to advocacy service teams in a number of ways.
As a service team volunteer in England, you might:

support the local advocacy team as needed
drop off promotional materials at various locations
attend events or assist in organising small local events
support staff with presentations
accompany advocacy staff on visits
support staff with group advocacy and self-advocacy workshops
submit regular reporting forms

You’ll need to be able to work independently and safely in various situations. This role will require some travel, so it will help if you have your own transport but do not worry we will cover your expenses.
