The Hepatitis C Trust has developed projects nationally whereby peers use their lived experience of injecting drug use and hepatitis C, to provide education and training to service users and staff in drug and alcohol, hostel and homeless services, increasing hepatitis C awareness, access to testing and referral to treatment, for people living with hepatitis C.
Do you have experience of working in drug services and with volunteers? Have you been affected by hepatitis C or have you supported anyone who has hepatitis C? We are looking for a passionate and skilled peer lead who has excellent communication and organisational skills. We require a good standard of education and welcome creativity and innovation in all our work.
Working under the guidance of the North Yorks and Humber Peer Project Manager, this post will support the delivery of the mobile clinic within the North Yorks and Humber ODN. Working in partnership with hepatitis C clinical teams, drug and alcohol services and homeless service providers, the post will coordinate delivery of engagement events including hepatitis C testing in community settings and ensure that service users are referred and supported through hepatitis C treatment and care. This post will require extensive travel across the region and it is preferable that the post holder holds a clean driving licence and has their own vehicle for work related travel.
