Community Ambassadors

Do you want to make a difference? Are you interested in health and social care? Would you like to meet new people, learn new skills and gain valuable work experience?

We are seeking volunteers to become Community Ambassadors and help shape future NHS and social care services in Sussex.

Community Ambassadors are part of an exciting new way of helping the Sussex Health and Care Partnership to understand what is important to local people and make sure local health and care services are what local people need.

We are looking for 30 members of the public to work in one of three Community Ambassador roles:

  • Community Ambassadors (Engagement) work in the local community, trying to make contact with people to talk to them about health and care services in the area and to find out their views.
  • Community Ambassadors (Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion) also work in the local community, but they are particularly trying to reach out to communities that the health and care services have difficulty in hearing from – for example faith groups, homeless people, people with a disability, people from some cultural backgrounds.
  • Community Ambassadors (Strategic) do office-based work, giving advice and support to NHS programmes across Sussex, and helping to make decisions about health and care services. 

Community Ambassadors receive expenses and, in certain circumstances, recognition payments are offered.  

As the Community Ambassador role is evolving, there are a limited number (30) of posts to fill at this time. 

We would love to tell you more about this opportunity. If you would like to find out more, please complete an Application Form below and we will be in touch.
