Harrogate Advocacy

Halfway through my volunteer week and another great charity.  Harrogate Advocacy was formed in 1993 with the aim of delivering services for people in the Harrogate area.  Since it was established, the service has continued to grow and now provides support to around 300 people each year.

Working with older people and those with learning disabilities, mental health issues or chronic disease, it speaks up for those who often have difficulty speaking up for themselves.

I helped with general clerical duties and back office work enabling the trained frontline personnel to deliver the service.  I took incoming calls, did some research on local schools and generally helped out around the office and learnt about the valuable work the organisation does.
