St Pauls Carnival CIC: Community Engagement Officer

St Pauls Carnival CIC recognises its unique position as an arts organisation that can influence and shape the local community, as well as support the strong, diverse and inclusive groups of people it has represented since its inception. A key legacy component of the Carnival is its community engagement, and specifically how this has changed over the last year in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic and digital exclusion. The following is intended as a guide for the new Community Engagement Officer to use over the next 18 months in order to enable them to deliver the strategy of engagement through improved relationships, trust and facilitation.

The Role:

This role is focused on engaging with the local community that we represent. As an organisation, St Pauls Carnival has good ties and existing relationships with its current residents and community. Part-funded by St Monica Trust, this role will focus primarily on the implementation of a project on Well Being and Digital Inclusion.

The pandemic has been difficult for everyone, particularly those who are more likely to be isolated, unable to engage with the digital technologies that have become so commonplace over the past year. Socialising is a vital part of well being and this project will fuse an intergenerational approach to build digital skills within older communities through capturing stories and memories of Bristol's older generation. The role will also support the implementation of the organisation community engagement strategy, working closely with key stakeholders in St Pauls, creating new relationships and keeping our communities informed of our work. Initially funded for an 8 month period, St Pauls Carnival will seek additional funding for such a pivotal role for the organisation's work.
