The role 

Inspire Advocacy provide support for people who access mental health services in the community and in hospital settings. We take time to listen to the views and concerns of the people we support and help them to explore their options and rights. Advocates play an important role in ensuring people have access to information and support to enable them to have a voice. We support people to communicate their wishes to the relevant people in a range of ways, including support them to attend meetings, or if appropriate, attending on their behalf. 

Tasks and responsibilities

  • listen to the wishes of service users and support them to feel able to speak up about decisions that affect their lives

  • source information and signpost to relevant agencies / organisations to support people to make informed decisions and understand their options and rights

  • support people to communicate their wishes to relevant others through attending meetings with them or on their behalf, or helping them with phone calls and written communication.
