Trainee Independent Mental Health and Capacity Advocates

Trainee Independent Mental Health and Capacity Advocates

We are not lawyers, but we are specialists who work with people who are seriously mentally ill, and people who have complex cognitive impairment.

15-20 hours per week, Mon to Fri, flexible, pay negotiable.

Support, empower, advocate, promote – we make a commitment to working closely with people of all ages, including children, living with serious mental ill health or lacking capacity and with complex needs? Our role is to promote and protect their rights and ensure they are listened to. Independent Advocacy can and does make a real difference to our clients’ quality of life.

Are you are looking for a change of direction from a health or social work background? Are you interested in working with people who need support to protect their human and legal rights? Do you have excellent interpersonal skills? Full professional training will be given.

If you are interested in working for our charity, please contact Kelley at for a job description and application form. Previous applicants need not re-apply.
