New Opportunities!

Advocacy for all are a well-established charity which, for the last 24 years have been enabling individuals to have ‘bigger voices and better lives’.

We are now offering an exciting opportunity to join our busy friendly team of advocates as an RPR in South/South East London, supporting vulnerable individuals to ensure their voices are heard and their rights are upheld.

What is an RPR?

A Relevant Person’s Representative; you will have a case load of people to visit on a regular basis to check that they are well looked after and safe from harm. Checking if they are happy in their place of care and that the carers are following correct processes. Reports are then submitted to the local council department with your feedback from your visit.

The role is challenging yet rewarding and will require strong communication
skills with an empathetic person-centred approach as you will be supporting the relevant person whilst they are deprived of their liberty in a hospital or care home.

Full training for the role and regular supervisions will be provided, as well as flexible working hours. Further ahead, there may be potential to extend and expand the job role and develop as an IMCA (Independent Mental Capacity Advocate) for which funded training/accreditation will be provided. The right candidate will be required to undergo this development training to fulfil the needs of the role and changing legislation.

To apply, please email with your CV and covering statement outlining your reasons for applying and how you meet the requirements of the role to:
