This post is funded by Glasgow HSCP to ensure that the voluntary / third sector in Glasgow is involved in the development of new ways of working to improve the health and wellbeing of Glasgow’s people. This will include understanding issues, designing and testing new approaches, building collaborations for change and evaluating impact. The post-holder will have a key role in building the relationship and developing understanding between the public and voluntary sector in the city.
The post-holder will have to manage a complex set of relationships and agendas. The public and voluntary sector share a strong desire to improve outcomes in the city but have different cultures and challenges. Success in this post will be measured by the extent to which health and social care services are designed and delivered collaboratively across agencies (regardless of sector) and with communities.
