Family advocacy involves providing an independent perspective and encouragement to help family members to make informed decisions and have a voice in administrative decisions, about the welfare and protection needs of their children. This will involve moral support and may include speaking, or constructively challenging, on their behalf if they wish.

Surgeries  operate within larger organisation's premises, in various areas.


A kind heart and common sense are essential in this role.  Your own transport is an advantage, as some weekday availability is necessary.

An enhanced DBS and references will be required.

Training is provided.
