GamCare is the UK’s leading provider of information, advice and support for anyone affected by gambling-related harms.

GamCare are delighted to be recruiting for the new post of Lived Experience Development Manager. This exciting role will take forward our ambitious plans to develop a framework, strategy and opportunities to drive up the voices of lived experience in all of our work. This is an organisation-wide role and will involve strong collaboration with our internal departments as well as key external stakeholders.

The post-holder will have experience in developing similar programmes of work, be confident to challenge and innovate, and have lived experience of addiction or other health harms to bring to bear on the work within the role.

GamCare recognises the importance of having people with lived experience of gambling related harm closely involved in developing truly effective services, and the unique perspective that people with these experiences bring. We have undertaken a comprehensive internal review of the organisation’s lived experience and service user involvement opportunities, structures, and processes. From this, and in line with our wider growth, we now have an ambitious plan of work in place to take forward developments in engaging those with lived experience. This also reflects the recommendations in relation to lived experience which underpin the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms (2019).

If you have a passion for improving services with lived experience at the heart of this, then please review our job description and requirements to apply.
