You will help us spread the word about the service by telephone queries, meeting with families, going to events, helping with outreach events and representing the service. We need you to support with signposting and liaise with other professionals on behalf of families and act as their advocate where necessary. You are expected to promote a positive image of the service and act professionally, representing the organisations to families, other volunteers and external professionals.
