The Advonet Group is supported by volunteers in advocacy, community work and supporting autistic people and people with learning disabilities.
We value the experience and knowledge volunteers bring and in return support them to gain skills and reach their career or educational goals.
Volunteering with The Advonet Group is a great way to build skills, gain experience in relevant fields and give back to your community. Volunteers work with us across many of our teams, including Community Advocacy, Self-Advocacy, Leeds Autism AIM, Leep1 and Citizen Advocacy, helping us provide the best service we can.
Everyone has valuable knowledge and experience to contribute and utilising the strengths of volunteers helps us work with and understand the needs of a wider cross section of people.
The Advonet Group believe volunteering to be a two-way street; you give us your time and skills and we give you regular training, support and feedback. We work with students doing placements in our Leep1 project and with people hoping to work towards paid employment to build skills and confidence.
