Become a bilingual interpreter and advocate

Our team at the Health Advocacy Service works with over 70 bilingual advocates and interpreter volunteers  from a variety of backgrounds, passionate about promoting everyone's right to health and wellbeing. Together, we speak over 30 languages and reach over 3,000 local people every year.

Volunteers play a vital part in helping us ensure that everyone can access local services and improve their health and wellbeing. As a volunteer, you will use your language skills to help people to communicate their needs and access services to improve their health and wellbeing. You could also be involved in delivering health workshops to your community.

What will you get?

  • UK work experience in interpreting and bilingual advocacy
  • development of your communication and interpreting skills
  • access to additional training and resources
  • support to develop your CV and find employment

What do I need?

To volunteer or work with us, you need an accredited qualification in community interpreting and/or bilingual advocacy and a commitment to helping and empowering others. We can help you find the best place to gain this qualification as currently we are not funded to deliver this. Contact us to find out more
