Are you a social worker, social prescriber, primary care background, voluntary sector background, or community worker passionate about Diversity and Inclusion?

Do you have experience of developing inclusive behaviours and working practices?

If so, this could be the role for you!

Charity People are delighted to be working with Princess Alice Hospice. They believe that end of life care is about helping people live every moment to the full, in comfort and dignity. It’s about creating a space, whether in their hospice or at home, where families can enjoy special moments and make precious memories.

Service Development Lead – Diversity and Inclusion
Salary: Circa £40k – £45k per annum (Pro Rata)
30 Hours per week – flexible working, can spread over 4 or 5 days
2-year Fixed Term Contract
Location: Esher, Surrey – fully office based role

The purpose of this role is to support the Hospice in achieving its strategic aim of reaching more people, enabling the communities they serve to have the best care and support before, during and after death.
They recognise that currently their services are not always accessed equally by people across the catchment area, and they may not be consistently providing care and support that fully meets the needs of those underrepresented communities. Forward thinking and resilient, you will help them to change this pattern, developing their knowledge and understanding and enabling them to make effective changes to their existing services to make them more accessible to all.

To make this happen, you will be evidence-led, using insight from data from the service users and building relationships with underrepresented communities. Working in partnership with colleagues and stakeholders, you will develop their knowledge and understanding of the needs of those in underrepresented groups and the barriers faced in accessing the Hospice’s services, identifying and leading on the implementation of improvements to their services to enhance the access.

You will possess the relevant awareness of clinical work, and how the health and care system would operate, plus awareness of knowledge of palliative end of life care. You will also be able to show your ability to engage with various communities and experience in doing so.

You will therefore have the knowledge, understanding and confidence to be able to challenge established assumptions and ways of working, developing inclusive behaviours and working practices which will benefit their patients and service users.
