CAPS is looking for a new Collective Advocacy worker to focus on the views and wishes of people with mental health issues living in Edinburgh. The role is to ensure people’s voices are heard by decision-makers locally and invite people to draw on their experiences to bring about change, such as improving mental health services.
This post will take the lead on Edinburgh wide mental health collective advocacy, working alongside a new Collective Advocacy for Peer workers and volunteers in Edinburgh. These two new roles will support each other and join the existing enthusiastic team of CAPS Collective Advocacy workers, who work across Lothian on eight different mental health related collective advocacy projects.
The role offers autonomy and flexibility. You should be friendly and approachable, with the ability to form trusting relationships with group members and colleagues. Good local knowledge of Edinburgh is preferred. Some working from home is possible. This is a great opportunity to work with a dynamic independent advocacy organisation that’s making a real difference to people’s lives.
