Community Engagement / Development opportunity

24 Jan 2020

Calling Community Engagement / Development Specialists!

Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind is looking for individuals and organisations with experience of carrying out community engagement/development work to help deliver a project which has been commissioned by the NHS. The project is focussed on six boroughs in South London (Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark).
 
The project will involve researching why pregnant women and women with children up to the age of two may not access perinatal mental health services.
 
Gaining an in depth understanding of the barriers experienced by these women will be central to the production of a report which will make recommendations to the NHS for the future based on findings. You will therefore need to work closely with people in perinatal services and other third sector organisations and groups to ensure that the final report is comprehensive.
 
Interested parties must be able to offer a minimum of three days per week over a 9-week period between March and June in order to carry out this work, collate findings and produce a meaningful report with recommendations that can then be used by the NHS in the future for service planning.
 
We will consider individuals and organisations wishing to work within one of the boroughs listed or in multiple boroughs.  Payment terms will be based on outcomes which will be agreed before work commences.
 
If you are interested in submitting a proposal for this work, please contact BLG Mind’s Head of Development in the first instance using the following details:
 
Charlotte.fletcher@blgmind.org.uk or by telephone on 07845 054999.
 
Any expressions of interest should be made by Friday 7th February.
 
More details about the project can be found in the document titled Expression of Interest.
