We are inviting proposals from consultants interested in playing a part in an exciting, transformational project in Leeds, working with award-winning third sector partners and senior health and social care leaders.
This Partnership is one of only of six projects nationally awarded funding by the National Lottery in partnership with the King’s Fund for an initial nine-month grant.
The Project Phase 1: We will invite our communities to lead discussions and develop our relationships across healthcare systems and leaders, commissioners and providers. Together we will deepen our understanding of our landscape through research, mapping, policy and gaps analysis.
There are three broad steps we need to take in Phase 1:
- Bringing people and information together
- Building relationships between the information and stakeholders
- Helping to formulate an action and work plan
This will inform a further three-year project (Phase 2), testing practical strategies to end health inequalities. We seek a consultant to support us for six months in Phase 1, for completion by November 2021.
Please refer to the Consultant Brief on our website before applying. The Consultant Brief contains more details including further background and context as well as an outline of the consultant input.
Consultant criteria: the following are indicative of what our consultant will bring to phase 1
·Knowledge of relevant methodologies including systems thinking and complexity, storytelling
·Experience in the fields of health inequalities, systems change and community development
·Experience & understanding of the application of theory & research in health care systems.
