Support Session Volunteers help our clients with general advocacy, supporting people with a variety of challenges. They will help us deliver our service which supports unpaid carers. This helps us to reduce waitlists and support more individuals by:
• Helping clients understand about advocacy
• Supporting clients to self-advocate with our tool kits
• Signposting clients to other services where required
• 1:1 casework
• Supporting the service to deliver “collective” advocacy sessions
• Keeping detailed notes and records of casework
• Promotion of services through events and community engagement
The Service Team Volunteer role is a varied role that will support VoiceAbility in the delivery of Social Security Scotland Benefits Advocacy and more. Our volunteers will help our clients to access benefits by supporting individuals with complex needs who self-disclose as having a disability. Another key part of the role is networking, in person and online, to promote the service. You will also have the opportunity to help VoiceAbility engage with local communities through supporting our school work experience programme as well as our ‘Speak Out Councils’.
In your day-to-day role you will be:
• Helping clients understand the service and how to access it
• Dropping off promotional materials
• Attending events
• Assisting staff with workshops, presentations and awareness raising
• Accompanying staff on home visits
• Promoting the organisation and our services
• Submitting regular reports on activities completed
All staff work from home, and we have no office base. The role is a hybrid role where you could be at home or out in the local area.

There is opportunity to become involved in such a wide variety of projects/ groups dependant on your availability of time. We would love support to reach our community more. Perhaps you have skills / interest in social media use or website development. Support once a month with minute taking would aid our volunteer group also. All options provide an insight into the wider activity within the community and support development of skills and experience.
We meet usually every last Monday of the month (except July and December). Some examples of our involvement are monthly meetings involving locally elected councillors, Police and guest speakers. We regularly review local planning applications, police reports, local news and address any concerns raised. We organise community events such as beach cleans, seasonal town decorations/ events such as the summer bunting and Christmas Lights display/ switch on. We also support to facilitate local projects such as most recently the creation of our Carnoustie Butterfly and supporting creation of the town heritage trail as well as collaborating with organisations to distribute community funds, such as the recent Seagreen Community Funding.
We have great volunteering opportunities at Angus Independent Advocacy (AIA). We are looking for Angus residents to become Citizen Advocate's. An ideal Citizen Advocate will share our core purpose of supporting people to have their voices heard and uphold our Values. They must be aged 18+, are non- judgemental and have good communication and listening skills. All Citizen Advocates undergo a PVG check and must provide 2 references. We also ask that all new Citizen Advocates complete our preparation course. The purpose of this course is to give the person a better understanding of what Citizen Advocacy is and the principles and standards that underpin our work, focusing on; inclusion, confidentiality, non-discriminatory practice and adult protection.
Main purpose of the role:
- To connect with people who may have a learning disability, mental ill health, acquired brain injury, have dementia or are an older person.
- Independent advocacy is a 1:1 equal partnership between an advocacy partner and citizen advocate. The citizen advocate will bring the concerns of the partner into ordinary life and help the partner to connect with their local community.
A Development Worker will support you until you are matched with an Advocacy Partner. Our volunteering is unique as once you are matched as an equal Partnership, there are no set hours it is up to the two people when they want to meet or talk. Have a look at some of our Stories for examples of what may be involved in a Partnership.
To become a Citizen Advocate or to find out more information, register your interest here or call our office on 01241 434413.
