About the Position
Position # 1482
OrganizationQuadra Village Community Centre - Downtown Blanshard Advisory Committee
Position Seniors Advocate - Seniors Entitlement Services
Location 901 Kings Rd, Victoria, BC, Canada
Impact Statement We work together to nurture individual and community well-being by providing advocacy services to low-income and higher need older adults in need of financial, housing, health care, and/or legal support.
Description Volunteer advocates needed to provide support and guidance to older adults, age 55+, in the Capital Region. Most of the people we serve are low-income and/or higher needs and want to live independently in their home (either as renter or owner) for as long as possible. Services include problem-solving, system navigation (financial, housing, health care, legal), information and referral services, and support to address elder abuse and/or unexpected hardships. We collaborate extensively with other senior serving agencies. Services are provided in-person and virtually.

Typically advocates meet with clients on a peer-to-peer, 1:1, basis.

Advocates also meet regularly, as a team, to share experiences and ideas.

We strongly encourage applicants who increase the diversity of our team and have the ability to engage diverse communities in a safe and supportive way.
