Avenues into Advocacy

  • Do you like asking ‘WHY’?
  • Are you good at listening to people talk about their lives?
  • Are you currently out of work?

A future in advocacy could be for you!


We have a limited number of free places available on a short course to help you discover if advocacy is for you. You’ll be learning about a new career while meeting new people and having fun on the way.

What you’ll get:
• Two learning days to build your knowledge of professional advocacy
• Ongoing skill development, especially around communication skills
• The opportunity to shadow professional advocates at client visits (up to six visits)
• Ongoing one-to-one support

We’re looking for people who are:
• Able to start this short course in October
• Able to commit 28 hours over 4 months (we will tailor the shadowing dates to suit your needs)
• Currently out of work

To book your place on this free course or for more information, please contact training@yvc.org.uk or ring 0191 4786472
