Connected Voice

Connected Voice is a charity and the principal voluntary and community sector infrastructure organisation for Newcastle and Gateshead.  Our mission is to support the development of voluntary and community action that is effective, sustainable and brings about positive social change.  Connected Voice Advocacy (formerly Advocacy Centre North) is a service delivered by the charity and provides a free, independent, high quality and ethical advocacy service.

We have an exciting opportunity for someone who is committed to and passionate about supporting adults with health and social care needs to enable them to take action to say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need.

We are seeking to recruit Independent Advocates to join our highly motivated and experienced team. We provide high quality, independent advocacy to both Community based and Statutory clients. So we need advocates who can work flexibly across our community and statutory advocacy services to provide a range of advocacy services around health and social needs under the Mental Health, Mental Capacity and Care Acts and/or advocate for adults in the community in vulnerable circumstances.
