Community Engagement Worker for Ethnically and Culturally Diverse Communities

About the role

Mind in Bradford are advertising for a role on behalf of our partners Staying Put, Girlington Community Centre and the African and Caribbean Achievement Project.

The Ethnically and Culturally Diverse Communities programme is a new programme led by Mind in Bradford and Staying Put which will understand and work with our diverse communities to develop culturally sensitive and appropriate mental health support.

  1. Staying Put will employ a CEW to understand and recommend the needs of people within our South Asian communities and the challenges or barriers historically or currently faced when accessing mental health services.
  2. Girlington Community Centre will employ a CEW to understand and recommend the needs of people within our Eastern European communities and the challenges or barriers they have historically or currently faced when accessing mental health services.
  3. African Caribbean Achievement Project will employ a CEW to understand and recommend the needs of people within our Black African and Black Caribbean communities and the challenges or blocks they have historically or currently faced when accessing mental health services.

Whilst we are recruiting to engage with the South Asian, Eastern European, Black African and Black Caribbean communities, the programme is not to the exclusion of other ethnically and culturally diverse communities. 

The successful candidate will engage, support and develop the capacity of people from Black African, Black Caribbean, Eastern European and South Asian Communities in order to address issues around mental distress, isolation and promote social inclusion. This could be but is not limited to focus groups, questionnaires, appropriate use of social media, attendance at meetings or interviews.
