The main purpose of this role is to work closely with the Project Lead in order to actively engage people affected by cancer from diverse and underrepresented communities across Bristol.  This will involve developing relationships and facilitating networks to ensure the needs of those communities are understood in order for Penny Brohn to design and implement services that are of specific benefit and relevance to them. 

This role requires an understanding of the diverse range of social, economic and environmental factors which impact on people’s health and wellbeing and the ability to achieve positive outcomes. The post holder will support the project lead in the development of projects in partnership with community groups, public and third sector organisations.  We are looking for a highly motivated and creative individual with excellent communication skills and the ability to build and develop relationships and connections within a community setting.

The way in which we help people is known as the Bristol Whole Life Approach which provides a powerful combination of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual support that is designed to help anyone affected by cancer, at any stage of the disease. We do this through residential courses, group sessions and 1-2-1 complementary therapies.
