“Nothing About Disabled People without Disabled People” Strategic Lead Co – production (working together)
In Hammersmith & Fulham, we want to be the best council in the country by making decisions with our residents and not for them. We are proud of our achievements such as:
- Getting rid of home car charges
- Taking the lead in bringing child refugees into the UK
- Cutting council tax
- Not lowering the spending on keeping our communities safe
But we want to go further. After the work of our unique Disabled People’s Commission, made up of 10 Disabled residents, we are moving forward to implement the recommendations of the report. https://www.lbhf.gov.uk/councillors-and-democracy/resident-led-commissions/disabled-people-s-commission
We now aim to work to get rid of many of the barriers that Disabled residents who live and work in the Borough still face.
The person that gets this job will be a Disabled person. They will be the Councils Strategic Senior Manager. They will work as part of our Public Services Reform Department.
This person will be in charge of leading the work of the Hammersmith & Fulham Co-production implementation group (HFCIG). They will be in charge of strategic planning and making sure the work is going in the right direction.
They will also be in charge of making sure that the planned work of the Hammersmith and Fulham Co-production Implementation Group is carried out all over the borough.
We are looking for Disabled people who share our vision and who want to work to turn that vision into reality.
You will have a strong background in influencing and bringing about strategic change with Disabled people. You will bring a passion for public service and the hunger to change the way the Council works with Disabled residents. The need for public service change is key to our vision to be better in all that we do.
This is a critical role in our new Public-Services Reform Department which will turn creativity, ambition, and leadership into action to achieve the change that our Disabled residents insist on.
