Public Health Community Development Jobs

What does a job in public health community development involve?

Community development jobs involve working with individuals, families or whole communities, helping them to:

- identify assets, needs and potential opportunities
- plan what they want to achieve
- develop tasks to take appropriate action

This is done by being a link between communities and a range of other local authority and voluntary sector providers, such as the police and fire service.The role often involves addressing inequality (cultural, health, economic or geographic).

Projects are often related to public health work and may include working on specific issues such as improving public transport, active travel and drug abuse, with specific groups such as homeless people, families with young children or ethnic minorities.
