Our new Advocacy and Support programme offers person centred, one to one support based on individual health and social care needs. Our Advocacy and Support Officers create a holistic package of care by working with other sector agencies, public services and local community support..
This support focusses on whatever challenges or obstacles the individuals we support experience with the hope that after a 12 week period they, with the assistance of our volunteers, feel confident in the systems and services we have put into place and can continue to live independently.
Irish Community Care Manchester can assist in a number of ways such as acting as an advocate when dealing with health care or social care agencies, providing weekly one to one support sessions, assisting with mobility issues, listening to concerns and trying to overcome problems together where we can.
Our advocacy and support officers work in the best interests of the individuals we support.
We are always looking for Advocacy and Support Volunteers to help our Services Users
