Island Advice Centre works within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets helping residents secure their statutory and legal rights, enabling them to improve their living standards and quality of life. Access to advice and advocacy is the core work of the organisation, helping people to stay above the poverty line, reduce stress and empower them to deal with their situations.
They are providing a one day training in communication skills/completing benefit forms (Personal Independent Payment and Employment Support Allowance) for London Met Students. These forms require a lengthy interview with a client asking questions about their health and how it affects their ability to perform certain tasks. No experience is necessary and you will gain experience in interviewing and gathering information from clients.To register go to:Come along to the briefing to find out more about this great volunteering opportunity and the training day.
