We're looking for a learning partner to help us create spaces for reflection as a partnership. Apply by 9 February 2024.
At Impact on Urban Health, we want to use our funding and expertise to remove the obstacles currently preventing everyone living in cities from experiencing good health and wellbeing. We believe we can achieve this by focusing on key complex issues which disproportionately affect people that live in urban places.
These are children’s health and food, multiple long-term conditions, the health effects of air pollution, and children’s mental health. Our work is long-term and through partnerships forged at local, borough, national and international levels.
Impact on Urban Health and Healing Justice London have joined forces in a three-year partnership project. The aim of this project is to learn about and develop Healing Justice London’s novel approach to helping people and communities who experience systemic oppression to heal and build resilience towards achieving better health and wellbeing.
Healing Justice London’s approach includes flagship interventions focused on tackling systemic problems of health injustice and health inequity at the individual, community, and institutional levels. Working across three levels, their work focusses on:

We will work with the successful learning partner at the start of their journey with us to create a detailed three-year learning plan, including specific objectives, questions, outputs, and methodologies.

We also require a learning partner who demonstrates:
Desirable knowledge includes:
Our budget for this learning work is up to £60,000, including expenses and VAT, over the next three years.
We expect this learning work to begin in Spring 2024 with the appointment of the successful learning partner and a round of team and project inductions. The work will run for 2.5 years until September 2026. At a minimum, we anticipate having annual reflections, as well as dedicated periods built into the three years to capture lessons, explore and connect with audiences, and create, test and refine our language and messages.
Interested individuals or organisations matching the knowledge, skills and attributes above can submit a short expression of interest (EOI) by email to Radhika Bynon no later than 10:00 on 9 February 2024.
