The Department for Work and Pensions is launching an opportunity to work in collaboration with Jobcentre Plus to shape the support for disabled people and those with health conditions in partnership with third sector organisations.
This was announced in Improving Lives: The Work, Health and Disability Green Paper, which was published for consultation on 31 October.
Community Partners will have a lived experience or expert knowledge of disability, and will bring this to enhance disability understanding in partnership with third sector organisations. They will help shape the support disabled people and those with health conditions receive, develop a national mentoring network and build relationships with specialist organisations in your area.
The Community Partner role is available on secondment or fixed-term appointment, and organisations are invited to offer secondment opportunities to their staff. Roles are available for one year, with a possible extension for a further 11 months.
Applications for Lead Community Partner roles will remain open until Friday 16 December.
Applications for Community Partner positions will commence in January 2017.
Upto £38,380 (National)
