Job description

Are you committed to improving lives for vulnerable people?  

Community Connections Lewisham (CCL) is a preventative social prescribing project, delivered by Age UK Lewisham and Southwark, aiming to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable adults across the borough of Lewisham. We achieve this through working with both individuals who want connecting to services, and the community groups they access. We support people to find:

  • Local community groups and access to social opportunities
  • Help with staying active
  • Befriending and practical assistance (food shopping, odd jobs, etc.)
  • New opportunities for employment, training and learning
  • Volunteering opportunities and opportunities for participation in local projects

Crucially, our project relies on strong and healthy relationships with our Key Partners. These Partners are to whom we refer in order to support our Client base. We currently have over 20 Key Partners varying in size and scope - some are small, local charities; others are statutory bodies operating across the City.

As the Project Manager for CCL overseeing Partner Coordination, you will be responsible for effective and successful delivery in this area. You will lead and line-manage a team of Partnership Coordinators, ensuring they provide an excellent service to our Clients while maintaining relationships with our Partners and hitting targets.

This is a dynamic and exciting role, with a wide range of duties including joint responsibility for the overall delivery of CCL - one of the largest pieces of voluntary sector provision in the borough of Lewisham’s Whole Systems Model of Care. We're looking for someone with excellent interpersonal skills, who understands the importance of communication, while being driven to ensure we achieve our goals and support the people who need it most.
