“Living my best life” is a term broadly used on social media, sometimes in an authentic way and sometimes with more than a sprinkle of sarcasm.
But here at Grapevine what it means to us is a vision of people and communities with the energy and confidence to tackle challenges and take opportunities. All kinds of people actually, experiencing isolation, poverty and disadvantage.
And this is where you might come in…
We want to build a team of three creative problem solvers with the ability to communicate at all levels and who genuinely care about supporting people with a ‘vulnerability’ to live the best life they possibly can. These ‘Community Powered Advocacy Worker’ roles will work in Warwickshire and be split between one full time 37-hours per week post and two part-time posts of 22.5 hours per week.
Change the system so that we can all work in ways that tackle root causes, prevent crisis, help people drive their lives forward
