About Black Thrive

We exist to change the odds stacked against Black people by embedding race equity into systemic change so that thriving is not the exception but the norm.

Black Thrive Global evolved from the work of the Black Thrive Lambeth Partnership, which was established in 2016 to address the inequalities that negatively impact the mental health and wellbeing of Black people in Lambeth. Black people’s cumulative exposure to negative experiences and poor outcomes are not unique to Lambeth and Black Thrive Global was founded in 2020 to address the detrimental outcomes for Black people of African and Caribbean descent wherever they may be located. Our work covers all life stages – children and young people, working age adults and older adults. Our guiding principle is to centre the lived experiences of Black communities in all that we do and our strategic priorities are to embed race equity in systems change and to decolonise the evidence landscape. 

Purpose of the role

The purpose of this role is to deliver a community consultation project that aims to build partnerships and trust between statutory services and London’s communities. This post is a central strategic role leading a project to support MOPAC to find new and better ways to work collaboratively with people, particularly Black communities. It will suit a leader in community engagement who wants to be at the forefront of greater public participation and dialogue in decision making.

The consultation activities will help develop a strong and embedded network to hold a forum for representative dialogue. Hence, a high range of members of London's Black communities and allies will be consulted and help us co-design plans to build trust and confidence between MOPAC and Black communities.

Main Accountabilities:

  • Responsible for the overall and effective management of the consultation project.
  • Work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to attract, retain and engage partners that can support the design and delivery of the consultation project.
  • Lead on project governance and reporting.
  • Support teams across Black Thrive and partners to ensure effective stakeholder coordination and project delivery.
  • Act as the main point of contact for MOPAC and other statutory partners
