Could you be our Advocacy Manager?

Our lovely Advocacy Manager Lucy has a new job as Chief Officer for Healthwatch Sheffield.

We are therefore looking to recruit a new advocacy manager. Our advocacy service supports disabled people to exercise their rights and be fully involved in decisions about their life. Sitting alongside the other work Disability Sheffield delivers the Advocacy Manager will be responsible for supporting and supervising the advocacy team, which delivers a range of advocacy (statutory and non-statutory) as part of Sheffield Advocacy Hub.

We are looking for an exceptional person with experience of both delivering advocacy and management. This is a unique opportunity to work within a small local disabled people’s user-led organisation. We particularly welcome applications from people with lived experience of disability or long term impairments.
Hours are 28 per week, (£28,485.00 f/t) £22,788.00 actual salary.

Very good presentation, brave of the speakers to tell their stories and had a very high impact - feedback from Mate/Hate Crime presentation and video session at Safeguarding Working Together Conference

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
