Friday, 15 February, 2019 - 00:00

Women experiencing multiple disadvantage are rarely able to get their voices heard or influence the services they use or need. Some groups in Manchester have begun to try to change this. We are looking for someone who can build on that change by:

  • Bringing together women with experience of issues like homelessness, abuse, mental health issues and addiction
  • Equipping them to undertake peer research to identify the issues that matter most to them
  • Supporting them to get their voices heard to influence policy and improve services in Manchester.

We are looking for someone who can get on and make this happen.  The successful candidate will understand the issues facing women experiencing multiple disadvantage and be strongly committed to co-production, peer support and  user-centred practice. They will have excellent communication skills and understand how to work with others to influence change. If you also have strong organisational skills, are able to work flexibly and independently, this may be the post for you.

Employed by MASH (Manchester Action on Street Health) and based at their city centre base, you will work with a wide range of women and organisations across the city. One day a week of your time will be spent focussing on MASH’s own approach to service user involvement.

This post is funded for 18 months

It is an occupational requirement under the Equality Act 2010 (Schedule 9, part 1) for this post to be filled only by a woman.

We particularly encourage applications from people with lived experience of at least one of the following: Drug and alcohol problems, homelessness, offending, domestic abuse, sex work.

Please note that CVs will not be accepted and any applications made after the deadline time will not be accepted.
