Alan has been with Age UK Gateshead (formerly Age Concern Gateshead) for twelve years. His role has involved co-ordinating a range of advocacy services and delivering case advocacy to older people within a range of settings in Gateshead.. In the past, he has devised and facilitated accredited training for volunteer advocates and set up an innovative peer advocacy support group for people with enduring mental health issues.
