Volunteer vacancy: Mental Health Equality Campaigns and Policy Volunteer

ROTA is seeking an exceptional volunteer to assist the Active Lives, Healthy Minds Project Managers on the Mental Health Equality Campaign.

The Mental Health Equality Campaign was set up at the start of 2018 in response to mental health inequalities experienced by racialised groups and is composed of an ever-growing network of various Black, Asian and Minority, Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) groups in North West London and beyond.

The campaign work is part of ROTA’s Active Lives, Healthy Minds project, which is a mental health and wellbeing project that works with four BAMER community groups in West and North London (Eritrean, Nepali, Somali and Tamil). The project aims to improve mental health and the wellbeing of members of the communities and supporting them to increase participation in the development and implementation of relevant mental health and health services in the area. The volunteer position will provide an opportunity to work directly with small refugee-led community organisations and learn about the mental health support needs and barriers to accessing services of members of these communities.
