About Project Officer (Growing Green and Blue Health)

A key function of our work is our Smile Health stream, linking the voluntary sector with healthcare pathways to get the best outcomes. With support from the National Lottery's Community Fund we are embarking on an exciting three year project that will see us take the lead on Growing Green and Blue Health across Humber and North Yorkshire.

Accessing green (outdoors and in-nature) and blue (on or near water) environments has proven benefits for our health and wellbeing, and the VCSE sector is key in making these connections happen. In Growing Green and Blue Health, we will work alongside the rich diversity of VCSE organisations across the region delivering outdoors and in-nature activities, identifying their support needs and developing a programme of training and upskilling that builds a more resilient sector, better able to accept referrals through healthcare pathways and with a strong voice in healthcare decision making within communities.

To deliver and co-ordinate this project on the ground we are recruiting a Project Officer (Growing Green and Blue Health). This is an exciting opportunity for someone passionate about the power of green and blue health opportunities and supporting VCSE development to deliver strong health and wellbeing outcomes for communities.
