Administrator The post holder provides administration support for all advocacy services and management committee. This post supports the advocates enabling them to focus on client needs. All clients indirectly benefit from this post. Without the administrator at least 30% of the advocates time would be taken away from direct client contact. The need has been confirmed since the appointment of the administrator in the development of the overall service and the client experience. Funding & Finance Officer The role of the Funding & Finance Officer will be to provide day to day financial support for the organisation, ensure management of funders and their accounts, and to secure the future funding for the whole organisation, as well as looking and working towards a more sustainable future for MAP. Principle/Senior Advocate To provide executive support to the Committee to enable effective decision making and efficient operation of services. To ensure that high quality independent mental health case advocacy is available to qualifying individuals in West Wales. The role includes directly providing an Advocacy Service for a small number of advocacy cases and specific supervisory responsibilities within the advocacy team including recruitment and supervision of advocates, operational aspects of the advocacy service delivery and risk management procedures for advocacy staff. Conclusion The Management Committee felt that as MAP has continually worked and grown to provide advocacy services to all age groups, the organisation needs to ensure the continued management and support for the advocates providing this service, and for the operation of this organisation.
