Community Ambassadors for Diverse Ethnic Communities

26 July 2021

Are you part of a diverse ethnic community in Sussex? Do you want to make a difference to your community? Are you interested in health and social care? Would you like to meet new people, learn new skills and get valuable work experience?

Sussex Health and Care Partnership (SHCP) is looking for volunteers to be Community Ambassadors for Diverse Ethnic Communities and help change future NHS and social care services in Sussex.

People from diverse ethnic communities experience some of the biggest health inequalities, even more since the start of the pandemic. It is really important to hear directly from people in those communities so that SHCP can fully understand the challenges communities are facing and work together to create solutions.

Community Ambassadors are part of an exciting new way of helping the Sussex Health and Care Partnership to understand what is important to your community and make sure local health and care services are what your community needs.

SHCP is looking for 10 members of the public from diverse ethnic communities to become Community Ambassadors.

The role of a Community Ambassador might include:

  • Engaging with your community, trying to make contact with people to talk to them about health and care services in the area and to find out their views.
  • Doing office-based work, giving advice and support to NHS programmes across Sussex, and helping to make decisions about health and care services.

Community Ambassadors receive expenses and, in some situations, recognition payments are offered.

If you want to find out more, please complete an Application Form below and you will be contacted.

The deadline for sending the application is 12 August 2021.
