Advocacy In Wirral
Advocacy in Wirral is currently working in collaboration with Clarity Creations on the creation of our new website in line with our recent change to AiW Health.
We are committing to provide an up to date website complete with information on all Advocacy Services as well as the latest news and job opportunities.
Thank you for your cooperation
Advocacy in Wirral
As part of its continued commitment to Investing in People, AiW is celebrating having secured funding to allow a range of volunteers and staff to undertake training courses to NVQ level.
Dale Hicks, who works as a volunteer on AiW's community mental health project and Sue Allan, a volunteer supporting AiW's Cancer Programme, have both started their studies towards a Certificate in Health and Social Care.
The studies are being delivered in partnership with NVQ Training.
Meanwhile, staff working within AiW have also recently competed training in Cancer Awareness. Simon Friend has also recently completed his Level 2 training in Smoking Cessation.
In addition, managers with supervisory responsibilities within AiW are being offered training sessions in effective supervision.
We are currently experiencing some issues with regards to our existing website. The links at the top of the Front Page marked "About Us" "Background" "Contact Us" and "How to Find Us" currently do not work.
We have created temporary pages marked "About us" and "Contact details & How to Find Us" located on the Main Menu under the section labelled Our Extras.
We apologise for any invconvenience caused.
Advocacy in Wirral is part of a Wirral-based consortium of local voluntary and community organisations who have been successful in winning a tender to help tackle unemployment in the borough.
The members of the winning ReachOut Partnership consortium are:
• Involve Northwest (lead body)
Advocacy in Wirral has a proud track-record of providing support to people experiencing mental ill-health who are also out of work. As an organisation, it has always sought to provide pathways back into employment, whether through volunteering opportunities or through one-to-one support in its Wirral Bridges project.
Sean Harrington, Business Development Manager, said AiW were delighted to be part of the winning consortium: "The funding comes after the successful delivery of a previous Working Wirral contract, and ensures that support will continue to be there for people experiencing mental ill-health."
The new funding becomes available from September 2012.
