Job description

You will lead a new Health Ambassadors project, which has been funded by the South East London Cancer Alliance for a fixed period of 1 year. Supported by the Self Advocacy Coordinator and LSU Director, you will set up and coordinate the project. Responsibilities include recruiting, training and supporting a team of three paid Health Ambassadors, who will be people with a learning disability. You will support them to facilitate workshops, presentations and training to groups of people with learning disabilities and individuals focussing on cancer awareness, health and the need for annual health checks. You will also support them to deliver learning disability awareness training to GP practices and other health professionals.

We seek a person with experience of supporting people with a learning disability and either experience or strong interest in the health and social care sector, who values people with a learning disability and puts them first. The person we seek must believe in the principles of supporting people with a learning disability to have a strong voice in society and to take control of their own lives.

Interview date: Tuesday 1 October 2019
Please ensure you are available on this date - regrettably, we are unable to hold interviews on any other dates.
