Full Job Title: Temporary Family Liaison Officer – Gypsy Travellers

Reference no: Enfield RQ791501

Enhanced DBS disclosure required

Over the last 18 months the Council and partners have exhausted all avenues to develop a programme for vaccination. The pandemic has being a main factor in drawing out this community for vaccinations not excluding negative narrative on social media that has unfortunately spread amongst the community at large.

This needs to be counteracted at grass roots level in addition to continuously promoting the national campaign.

Unfortunately, the national campaign is nearly 3 steps ahead as the council are still at the initial stage of encouraging participation in first vaccination, so there is a lot of work to do and it needs resource to see that improvement.

2 family Liaison officers are required who will work directly for the Council, Edmonton Community partnership and 95 schools currently in Enfield as a direct route in to reach these families.

A bespoke programme of delivery is required to implement the campaign for this community, it also needs to be culturally sensitive with experienced officers whom have worked with GRT communities previously; as in time in time the council will be developing skills within the community to advocate for their families on health inclusion. There are some GRT community members that have expressed an interest in this already so with this funding the council can get the ball rolling immediately.

Successful applicants will be working with other partnership agencies including Dr’s of the World as they alone cannot achieve health inclusion across these demographics.
