Position: Advocate

Afia is an Advocate who joined Beacon in 2018. Afia has over 25 years’ experience supporting vulnerable adults with complex decisions, including working with palliative clients in a cancer setting, and helping people with learning disabilities and in mental health support.

Afia says:

‘I love working with people and supporting them to understand and gain the confidence to participate as fully as possible in the CHC process. Speaking in depth about care needs is difficult and people often benefit from being guided on what to explore further at assessment. I really enjoy listening to my clients and then delivering at assessment the information which makes a difference regarding eligibility.’
