Young Black Men’s Engagement Worker- Film 42

Please note that this post is subject to a Genuine Occupational Qualification (GOQ) under the Equalities Act 2010. The post holder should identify as being of Black heritage. This is in recognition of the belief that access to positive black role models will play an essential role in the delivery of this community based project with young black men.

A partnership between 42nd Street, Theatre In Prisons and Probation (TIPP), Survivors Manchester and Youth Access, Film 42 is a Comic Relief funded project to work with young black men aged 16-20 years. The project will support them to campaign for the improvement and increased take up of mental health and wellbeing support for their peers.

The post holder will work closely with a film maker to engage young black men in driving forward two campaigns: one to engage more young black men in accessing support for the mental health and wellbeing, the other to train and influence decision makers and service providers to design and deliver better support and better services for young black men.

The campaigns will explore and promote the findings in a report already written by young black men from 42nd Street called “Perceptions” and will engage authentically and meaningfully in young black culture in the spaces they occupy, building relationships with relevant groups and communities. From this process we will be able to start to catalogue the real assets and issues that these young people experience and build a better understanding and evidence base to inform the films and campaigns. We will also recruit young people as our core film makers from these communities. The project will be externally evaluated through national organisation Youth Access.
