COMMUNITY RENEWAL is a dynamic and innovative organisation at the cutting-edge of work towards ending persistent poverty in Scotland.
Community Renewal works among deprived communities to develop, deliver and share better approaches to unlocking flourishing lives and flourishing neighbourhoods. These approaches always place people and communities in the lead: listening to them, identifying their strengths, supporting them on their terms, and building their capacity to flourish.
Community Renewal alleviates poverty by engaging and forming trusting relationships with individuals, whole families and whole communities together then supporting them by combining holistic case management (e.g. around income, work, health, wellness) with community development (e.g. forming new community activities/groups). This work is about testing change which can inform policy, be scaled up or replicated to achieve a much greater impact than our direct delivery alone.
COMMUNITY RENEWAL: LIFTING NEIGHBOURHOODS TOGETHER
Community Renewal Trust has been awarded a £2.1m grant from National Lottery Community Foundation to deliver Community Renewal: Lifting Neighbourhoods Together (LNT). All the delivery in our Bingham office, where this role is based, is incorporated into the LNT programme.
The LNT programme is looking at how we can radically change how deprived neighbourhoods are supported. We think much more could be done to focus on community engagement and effective case management (e.g. coaching) that sticks with someone for as long as it takes for them to build the capacity to transform their own life for the better. This is unlike some existing services which seek to dissuade people from attending and provide a short-term fix for them.
We invite applications from committed individuals, who thrive on working with communities.
Applications should be made via C.V which should be on the maximum of 2 A4 page accompanied by a covering letter detailing why you would be the perfect fit for such a dynamic initiative.
CLOSING DATE 13th December at 5pm - Interviews will be held on 20th December
