Why volunteer for Advocacy Focus?

You don’t need to be an advocacy expert; empathy matters more than academic qualifications or professional experience, and we are keen to hear from people of all ages and walks of life.

We have volunteering roles to suit everyone. All we ask is that you are willing to give us a small amount of your time and in return we will invest in your personal and professional development.

Volunteering benefits go both ways, helping others can be the best way to help ourselves.


Here’s what our volunteers have to say about volunteering for Advocacy Focus:

“If it wasn’t for the volunteering experience Advocacy Focus has given me, in terms of hands-on experience with patients on the hospitals, I would not have secured a masters place at university.”

“Due to my own struggles, and personal experience with mental health I felt inspired to help others believe that anything is possible. I have a genuine interest and passion in helping other people and more specifically those struggling with ill mental health.  Volunteering with Advocacy Focus has given me that opportunity to give back to others” 

If you are unsure what volunteer role would be the best fit for you, or believe you have a skill we could benefit from, you can email our Volunteer Manager here or give us a call on 0300 323 0965.
