About the role

You will help develop and implement the model for participation including the planning, organising and facilitation of groups and be the key point of contact for researchers and the community.

The aim of the Centre for BME Health is to reduce ethnic health inequalities in the East Midlands. We do this by working with patients, the public, community and voluntary sectors, researchers, health and social care organisations to inspire community led research, develop and promote culturally sensitive resources, raise awareness of community engagement, encourage active research participation and collaborate with researchers to widen participation.
