Compassionate Neighbours is a community-based project run by North London Hospice that supports people experiencing social isolation and/or loneliness who also have a life-limiting condition. Community members are introduced to one or more of our trained Compassionate Neighbours for emotional and practical support. We have been running since May 2018 and have trained over 170 Compassionate Neighbours and made over 100 introductions.
We have been awarded some funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and would like to recruit two people who are passionate about community engagement and are available from the beginning of January for three months to help research and engage with our community groups in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey. The work will involve:
- Identifying and building relationships with the mutual aid groups and other relevant local community groups.
- Mapping the services and activities that are available in each borough that could form part of a referral or recruitment pathway
- Promoting the Compassionate Neighbours project to potential volunteers and referrers.
This is a fixed term position as the Lottery funding must be used in this financial year. We are looking to fill two positions (one full-time and one four days per week but we will be flexible for the right person).
