As the Advocacy Liaison Officer, part of my job to help support People First Merseyside members with any issues they need one to one support with. Together we discuss the details of the issue in hand, the possible solutions, and how the best solution can be achieved by People First member.

The broader aim of this is to help our members gain confidence to take control over issues that affect their lives, speak up about their needs, have great choice to access services, feel safer in their community, improve physical and mental wellbeing, and feel more empowered to tackle everyday life.

Another aspect of the role is to work alongside members to develop and deliver disability awareness training for community organisations/agencies.
