Eczema Outreach Support is a charity supporting families struggling with the day-to-day challenges of having a child with eczema. This new role is an exciting opportunity to develop, launch and run our charity’s school workshop programme UK-wide.
Over the past few years we have offered a school workshop programme to our member families across Scotland. This has proved extremely successful and has helped raise awareness of eczema in schools, built the confidence of children with eczema and reduced instances of bullying.
Earlier this year we piloted offering the school workshops to our members in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The pilot was a great success and we are now in a position to launch our school workshop programme UK-wide. The workshops will be delivered by a bank of sessional workers spread across the UK.
The Outreach Co-ordinator will be responsible for planning the service, putting in place processes to ensure it works alongside our family support service, recruiting the bank of sessional workers, and the on-going work of matching requests for school workshops from our member families with sessional workers to deliver the sessions.
In time, the role will also include developing the role of the sessional worker beyond school workshops, and developing volunteering opportunities across the UK.
The closing date for applications is Sunday 24 November 2019, midnight.
