Support People

Sage promotes and supports the rights of vulnerable adults and older people. The right to have your voice heard and to participate in the making of decisions which affect you is a fundamental principle in a democratic society. It is about independence and interdependence. It is a principle simply stated as “Nothing about you / without you”

Sage need volunteers to raise awareness of our services at local level and to provide general support to Sage clients to enable them to make or have their voice heard. Support People will interact with various key audiences, including service providers and relevant community and voluntary organisations.

To apply please fill out our application form which is available in word format here, or alternatively you can complete the application through our online web-form, which is available on our website.
