Role

AdvoCard is a well-established and highly regarded advocacy organisation in Edinburgh. Primarily providing independent advocacy to individuals affected by mental ill-health and/or problematic substance use, we work individually and collectively with a range of advocacy partners to ensure their voices are heard and their rights upheld.

We are currently expanding the service that we offer to provide drop ins and outreach work in each of the localities in Edinburgh and are looking to recruit an advocacy worker to join our existing Outreach Team.

If you can bring commitment, innovation and a real passion for supporting the individual and collective voices of those who struggle to be heard, we want to hear from you.

To be successful, you will have a background working in advocacy, social care or a related field in either the statutory or third sector.
