Active Lifestyles Community Connector x2

The Black Country has some of the highest levels of physical inactivity nationally with the lives of Black Country residents determined by a unique set of characteristics including high levels of deprivation, low skill levels and high unemployment and health inequalities.

Black Country Together, Active Black Country and Black Country Local Authorities are working together to deliver the ‘Black Country Place Based Pilot’, which seeks to test new approaches to getting people more physically active and contributing to a healthier, more prosperous Black Country.

This exciting programme, funded by Sport England and Black Country Consortium Ltd and will trial new approaches in eight wards across Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. The funding will be disseminated by West Midlands Combined Authority. The programme seeks to create strong links within and across communities, understand what is needed to remove barriers to physical activity, and make best use of existing assets within communities to encourage more people to be active and identify with, and feel a sense of ‘belonging’ to, their place.

We are recruiting to two posts which will carry out a variety of outreach activities to engage with people living within priority and local stakeholders including voluntary and community organisations and public sector bodies. The role will include working with organisations to improve and develop activities and events that provide people with the opportunity to be physically active and improve their self-esteem, happiness and confidence, and working with local programmes, such as Social Prescribing services, to help make links and improve access and referral routes to active lifestyle services and activities.

The posts will work across the North Black Country (Walsall and Wolverhampton) and South Black Country (Sandwell and Dudley), focused primarily in the eight priority ward areas, but with a requirement to work and travel across the area.

For more information, please contact Alex Boys on 01922 619 840.
