Peer Support and Mentoring Worker, Health for Black Africans Project

  • Part time
  • £24,000 pro-rata
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 1st November 2022

About Passion4Fusion

Passion4Fusion was established in 2015 by a group of multicultural volunteers from across Edinburgh and Lothian who share the motivation and determination to create a support structure to meet the needs of the diverse ethnic minority communities especially youth and their families living in Edinburgh and West Lothian. We aim to empower and advance the equal and active participation of the diverse ethnic minorities young people and their families as well as promoting their active participation in all aspects of society.

About the post

We are recruiting a Peer Support and Mentoring Worker to join our Health for Black Africans Project. Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, the project aims to support participants to improve their physical and mental health.

The Peer Support and Mentoring Worker will be part of a new team, led by a Community Development Coordinator and assisted by trained volunteers to provide outreach support.

The team will provide one-to-one culturally appropriate support, group activities, ensuring people receive relevant information and help to manage their long-term health needs, and will break down barriers that prevent people from accessing mainstream services.

It is expected that the majority of this work will be delivered through assertive outreach (i.e., taking the service to the people rather than expecting people to come to the service). As such this will involve working in places frequented by Africans.

We are looking for someone who has lived experience of working with and supporting people with long-term health conditions, who can deliver direct support, use their experience to better support the people we are working with and providing peer support. You’ll also have experience of working with African people with multiple and complex health needs, be able to work well in a team and independently, and have a passion for about working with communities to improve the health and wellbeing of Africans in Edinburgh and West Lothian. If that sounds like you then we would love to hear from you.

In return, we offer a supportive and valuing work environment with encouragement to develop personally and professionally.
