Even though it's a high need area Coventry lacks a non-statutory advocacy service for people with learning disability and autism. As a member of our new team you will advocate for people a year who are ineligible for statutory Care Act advocacy and lack an individual who can advocate for them.

Working alongside our Help and Connect team, your work will be all about putting people in charge of their lives, getting around challenges and problems and finding a better life with informal support and friendship in the community. You’ll work with a varied bunch of people experiencing learning disability and autism. They will be living either with family or independently and not be eligible for any local government help because their level of need is seen to be low. 

Benefits include

  • 25 days annual leave + 12 bank holidays (FTE)

  • Flexible working

  • Stakeholder pension scheme plus 8% employer contribution

  • Employee Assistance Scheme

  • A friendly workplace with a strong culture of helping people uncover their potential.

We are holding an informal Q&A session on zoom at 7pm on the 5th July so people can find out more. Details about how to attend can be found on the job application form.
