Will you join us?
Mind – alongside our partners SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) in Scotland and Inspire in Northern Ireland – has been Co-op’s national charity partners since 2019. This is our biggest and first multi-strand partnership which launched in October 2019 and runs until October 2023.

We support people to be involved in designing and delivering our work, and to develop their own ability to lead.
Our increased impact comes about through supporting and strengthening the federated model and our relationships with our network of 120+ affiliated local Minds organisations, so that strategically we can align and they are supported and equipped to act as the primary vehicles and take ownership and leadership of Mind’s mission in local areas across England and Wales.
This role will work within the Community Programmes team to support the innovative community-based services Coop are funding across the local Mind network. Working alongside colleagues, the role will manage a portfolio of projects, ensuring they maximise their impact, fulfil funder requirements and contribute to the widespread sharing and scaling of learning and models.
