About the role:
Jospeh Rowntree Housing Trust’s (JRHT) role in Hartlepool is key to work in the town to develop locally owned and driven solutions to poverty. The Hartlepool Action Lab’s approach of identifying and drawing together assets, ideas, energy and resources is an important contributor to change in the town.
Their work aims to be agile and creative in addressing problems, and to catalyse and support communities to find and implement local solutions to poverty. Since 2016, this has created six locally driven projects working on issues ranging from housing, volunteering, community development, benefits and the cost of energy and food.
The post offers an exciting opportunity to work alongside others – local residents, voluntary organisations, the public sector and businesses – in shaping and supporting actions that make a genuine impact on poverty and build the strengths and resources of those involved.
