Older people’s advocate sought for Dorset
2:00pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
AN Older People’s Advocate will be recruited by Dorset’s Police and Crime Commissioner to help engage with older communities across the county.
The new voluntary role is designed to help Martyn Underhill hear the wide range of issues affecting the older generation.
The appointment will be the third advocate role aimed to support the Commissioner’s work. Helene Bowman Brown was appointed for Boscombe in April and the PCC is also looking for a Polish PCC Advocate.
Mr Underhill said: “This new role signals the importance I have placed on making sure the elderly in Dorset have a voice.
“It is important that the elderly and the groups that represent them have a point of contact on the wide range of issues affecting older people.”
The advocates must be available for one to 10 hours per month and expenses will be reimbursed.
