[ SITUATIONS VACANT: Elephant Community Advocates ]

Elephant Angels is an exciting programme in the
Elephant and Castle area, designed to assist residents
to overcome barriers preventing their full
participation in the social and economic life of
society. The programme is delivered by Community
Advocates, largely through outreach work in the
community.

We are currently seeking applications for Advocate and
Trainee Advocate posts from people with a variety of
backgrounds and skills who can provide a wide range of
support services to vulnerable members of the local
communities.

For full details of these posts, please see
