Project Officer – Community Voice
Closing date: Monday 20 June 2022
Location: Tyne & Wear
Hours: 35 hours per week
Salary: £21,851 per annum
Vision & Hearing Support has secured funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to deliver a network of activity, led by service users and supported by Community Voice Officers and Volunteers. The project has been funded for two years and is a Partnership between VHS, Your Voice Counts and BlissAbility. The project will host three Community Voice Officers, one in each organisation, who will form a collaborative network. The three Community Voice Officers will be part of a larger project Team including a Project Coordinator and Volunteer Officer.
Employed by Bliss=Ability, the Community Voice Officer will work with beneficiaries, volunteers and members to inform solutions to our shared priorities. The Community Voice Officer will establish and facilitate a range of social networks in response to local challenges. This will be developed at a grass roots level but may include a review of local opportunities available, the establishment of social networks, facilitating access to existing local groups or a combination of these.
The Community Voice Officers will work across Gateshead and South Tyneside and collaboratively with the Partner organisations. The role will work closely with colleagues from the Project and the wider Charity to enable us to meet the funding and organisational outcomes.
