People experiencing homelessness have highly complex health needs resulting in an average of 11 people dying every week; more than a quarter of whom are under 40 years old. #HealthNow is a 4-year partnership funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and led by Groundswell, in partnership with Crisis and Shelter. The project aims to understand and tackle the root causes of Health Inequality for people experiencing homelessness. We’re looking for a self-motivated individual with experience of project management to join us as a #HealthNow Local Coordinator and act as a champion in your local area to really make a difference to people and help change the system.
Groundswell has been successful, in partnership with national homelessness charities Crisis and Shelter, in securing a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund to take a national approach to overcoming homeless health inequalities.
The grant will deliver #HealthNow across the UK over the next four years, working towards an inclusive health system where everyone has access to the health care they need; ultimately moving people out of homelessness. This will directly benefit at least 450 people experiencing homelessness as well as 65 volunteers who have previously been homeless.
Together we will create local #HealthNow alliances in Birmingham, Greater Manchester and Newcastle informed by peer led research to understand and raise awareness of local barriers to accessing healthcare for homeless people. Local #HealthNow alliance members will use this insight to co-produce solutions to overcome homeless health inequalities in their area. Through our partnerships we will deliver frontline Homeless Health Peer Advocacy (HHPA), helping people experiencing homelessness address their physical and mental health needs across Greater Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham.
The local activities, insight and changes will inform a national #HealthNow alliance leading to nationwide actions being adopted to improve homeless health, ultimately helping people move out of homelessness.
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.
Crisis Skylight Birmingham provides innovative and exciting projects, opportunities and support for people who are and at risk of being homeless from our Centre in Birmingham and in outreach settings across the region. Our aim is to see homelessness ended in Birmingham and our unique service offer that blends coaching, teaching & learning has sustained and continued positive results for people we work with. It is an exciting time in Crisis Skylight Birmingham as we support homeless people out of homelessness for good in line with our 5-year strategic plan.
About the role
We’ll rely on you to provide a good project management and coordination of volunteers to deliver peer led research and health advocacy which will enable people to get access to the care they need. You’ll also have responsibility for developing a local alliance in your area to plan and deliver on local initiatives to help the system better respond to the health needs of people experiencing homelessness. Helping find, recruit and support volunteers and local stakeholders are all aspects of this interesting, varied and ground-breaking role. You will be part of piloting this new approach and will contribute to a national #HealthNow alliance.
You’ll need a proven track record of project management and volunteer coordination. We’ll also expect you to have good understanding of the challenges that people face accessing health services when they are homeless. Good communication skills and proficiency using Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, email and the internet are also key. A proactive and collaborative approach is important too, as is the ability to apply creative thinking and introduce new ideas and processes. And, when it comes to communicating with people at all levels and building great working relationships, again, you have what it takes.
