Community Engagement Producer

 

Laughter Wellbeing Programme

Over the last two years, we have piloted a ‘Laugher Therapy’ programme, our aim being to help people in sheltered housing, where there is a higher risk of social isolation, loneliness, and depression. This pilot was a huge success, and we are currently growing the programme to support communities in Belgrave, St Matthews and Highfields.

As part of this programme, we will be:

Facilitating an extended Laughter Yoga programme within educational and community settings that improves the mental health and emotional wellbeing of older people and junior school age children.

Co-creating wellbeing events that brings the local community together, promoting intergenerational interaction and enabling more people to sample Laughter Yoga.

Empowering community members and teaching staff to become Laughter Yoga Champions, providing local people and schools with the confidence and skills necessary to make our Laughter Yoga groups and activities sustainable, so that they can support their communities on a long-term basis.

About The Role

We are looking for a flexible, motivated and adaptable individual who enjoys working within community settings, and is committed to engagement, inclusion and participation.
