CAPS is looking for a new enthusiastic person to take on the role of Collective Advocacy worker to facilitate two established collective advocacy projects. These are Much More Than A Label, a group for people with experiences of personality disorder, and Experiences of Psychosis, for people with experiences of psychosis. The role is to ensure people’s voices are heard by decision-makers and assist people to draw on their experiences to bring about change, such as improving mental health services.

You will be led by people in the groups to take forward their identified actions, and make sure their views and wishes are expressed. You will also contribute to developing experience led sessions with group members as part of our Education as Advocacy programme. 

The role offers autonomy and flexibility, working as part of our dynamic team of Collective Advocacy workers. You should be friendly and approachable, with the ability to form trusting relationships with group members and colleagues. Some working from home is possible and regularly attending meetings in and around Edinburgh will be necessary. This is a great opportunity to work with an advocacy organisation that’s making a real difference to people’s lives. Find out more about CAPS Independent Advocacy at:

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, 0131 273 5116.
