Become an Independent Volunteer Advocate
Our independent advocacy service needs your help to support older people (50+) and carers in your community.
HOPE will enable older people and carers to engage with professionals, participate in their communities, understand their rights as an older person, access information to make informed choices and, at the end of the day, have their voices heard.
We're recruiting and training community based volunteers all over Wales to provide independent advocacy support to local older people and carers so they can help shape the key decisions affecting their lives and avoid getting into a crisis situation. The HOPE project is funded to March 2025.
Volunteers will mainly be providing support over the phone or via video call. Where appropriate, a hybrid approach based on the needs of clients can be applied, with some face to face contact arranged. Age Cymru wants to ensure the safety of all its staff and volunteers and is following Welsh Government and Public Health Wales Guidance.
Independent Volunteer Advocates will only be expected to support people Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm in line with the working hours of the project staff.
