We have self advocacy across Hampshire and Southampton. We have youth groups funded by Children in Need for young people aged 16-19 yrs. Groups meet on a monthly basis to talk about the issues which are important to them, take part in local and national consultations, and have a voice in the development of local services.

By volunteering with us you will be supporting people to be included in the decisions that affect their lives, to promote choice, control and social inclusion.
You can commit to as little or a much time as you feel able to. We will match you with people who are would like an advocate. This will depend on the location you would like to work in, how much time you can offer, the types of issues you feel comfortable supporting someone with and how well we think you would get on.
As a volunteer you will be provided with ongoing training, supervision and support whilst in your role as an advocate. We will also seek references, undertake a DBS check and an interview before volunteers begin any work with us.
