Main purpose of role:

The Wales Advocacy and Information Officer will join a team that makes a real difference to the lives of the people living with muscle-wasting conditions in Wales.

The role will initially be home based, but this will be subject to change as more honorary contracts are set up with other hospital trusts in the region. You will work with statutory organisations, clinicians, social and health professionals to ensure that people with muscle-wasting conditions get the care and support they are entitled to.

As a charity, we are now contacted by more families than ever before. Given this increase in numbers, the post holder will take leadership of welcoming new families to the charity, working with all charity departments to do so.

 

Main areas of responsibility:

  1. Develop the care and support services in order to reach more people living with muscle-wasting conditions, and their families;
  2. Support the development of the charity’s advocacy and welfare service locally, by taking on individual advocacy cases;
  3. Identify volunteers and support the Volunteer Engagement Manager to recruit and empower volunteers to manage and lead local Muscle Groups and peer support groups.
