    Description

    The Hepatitis C Trust has developed projects nationally whereby peers use their lived experience of injecting drug use and hepatitis C, to provide education and training to increase awareness of hepatitis C, reduce stigma, and promote access to testing and treatment for people living with hepatitis C.  

    Do you have experience of working in drug services and with volunteers? Have you been affected by hepatitis C or have you supported anyone who has hepatitis C? We are looking for a passionate and skilled peer lead who has excellent communication and organisational skills. We require a good standard of education and welcome creativity and innovation in all our work.

    Working as part of a growing team providing services to people living with hepatitis C, this post will expand delivery of the Hepatitis C peer project, recruiting and supporting volunteer peers across the Oxford & Thames Valley area. Working in partnership with local NHS colleagues, the project will focus on community pharmacies, offering hepatitis C testing to people using needle and syringe provision and/or receiving opiate substitution treatment and ensure that service users are referred and supported through hepatitis C treatment and care.

    These posts will require extensive travel across the region, and it is essential for post holders to hold a clean driving licence and have their own vehicle for work related travel.
