North regional lead for the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance

The Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance (CHWA) is looking for a Regional Lead for the North of England.

CHWA is the national membership organisation for creative health. We use the term “creative health” to mean any arts or cultural activity that supports health or wellbeing. Our main roles as an organisation are: advocating for creative health, supporting networks for creative and cultural workers and partners in health and social care, and building resources to help make this work more possible. We don’t provide creative activities that support health and wellbeing ourselves – instead we support other people who do.

This new regional post is a key part of our work as an Investment Principles Support Organisation (IPSO) funded by Arts Council England from 2023-6. Based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, the role will focus on creative health in Barnsley and the wider South Yorkshire region. The postholder will also have a wider remit for advocacy and networking across the North of the country, working closely with CHWA’s volunteer regional champions.  

The post is about developing strategic and infrastructural support for creative health rather than delivering projects. We want the postholder to bring together local and regional partners, and to scope and develop models for commissioning, investment and practice, learning from existing work and partnership across Barnsley and South Yorkshire. With committed support in place from local and national partners, this is an exciting opportunity to build on this momentum and create long-lasting change. 

Salary: £35,000 pro rata, 0.6FTE (3 days per week)

Application deadline: 5pm on Monday 27th February
