Partnerships Officer (BAME Disparities Project)

Tower Hamlets Council for Voluntary Service (THCVS) is an independent membership organisation supporting and representing voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise organisations in the borough of Tower Hamlets.

We have secured funding for a one year action research project to support BAME community groups across Tower Hamlets to build on and sustain the impact achieved in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Project will work with BAME community groups and with system leaders to develop effective and sustainable mechanisms for influencing health and social care systems across Tower Hamlets. The Project will also provide practical support to participating BAME community groups to develop their digital capabilities and longer-term sustainability.

The successful candidate will have experience of successfully bringing organisations together to influence changes in policy or service delivery and will ideally have a practical understanding of the barriers and challenges that BAME community groups face. The post holder will be joining a small capacity building team of 5 people and will be supported in the delivery of the Project by an advisory group with a range of expertise and skills.

Currently, THCVS is supporting all staff to work from home or the office depending on what is most appropriate to keeping safe and the needs of the service.
