LIL are looking for volunteer advocates to become part of our team in helping the disabled community in Lincolnshire. We are looking to create hubs of local advisors, who will support disabled people in fulfilling their potential and give them more choice .
Our team of advocates will receive a full weeks training, and will be paid expenses and mileage. Once trained the peer supporters, will go out in the communities to offer advice and support where required. The whole project will be supported by VoiceAbility, the counties advocacy service.
Training will include supporting people through the benefit changes, managing direct payments, employing carers and help and advice in looking for jobs.
This is a great opportunity to get trained and support local people in your area. Anyone interested should respond via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
