CAPS is looking for a new Collective Advocacy worker to lead the work of these two established collective advocacy projects. The role is to ensure people’s voices in both these groups are heard by decision-makers locally. Each group has developed it’s own priorities by drawing on their experiences to bring about change and improve attitudes and services.
This new role will support 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. 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.

Familiarity with the experiences of these groups would be an advantage. There will be a 6-month probationary period attached to this post. This post will be subject to membership of the PVG Scheme and appropriate check. The closing date for applications is Thursday 14th September 2023 at 12 noon.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact Judith Stirling email@example.com, 0131 273 5116.
