Job Title: Consultant – Invitation to tender – Racial Justice Support Work – UNGO Jobs

Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Organization: Doctors of the World UK
Closing date: 15 May 2022

Doctors of the World UK is part of the global Médecins du Monde network, which delivers over 300 projects in more than 70 countries through 3,000 volunteers.

Our vision is of a world in which vulnerable people affected by war, natural disasters, disease, hunger, poverty or exclusion get the healthcare they need.

Through our health programmes and advocacy, we work to ensure excluded people overcome barriers to realising their right to healthcare. Since opening in the UK in 1998, we’ve raised £6m for overseas programmes, helped 7,000 service users here and fought for healthcare as a human right for all.

We work with and for:

  • people in crisis, providing life-saving humanitarian healthcare in times of war and after natural disasters
  • migrants in vulnerable situations, including by advocating for the right to healthcare across Europe
  • people at risk of harm, especially from HIV and AIDS or hepatitis C, such as drug users and sex workers
  • women and girls’ right to sexual and reproductive health

We believe that every person living in the UK has the right to healthcare, and we work to influence public policy and local implementation to reduce health inequalities and ensure access to healthcare for all.

DOTW are looking for a consultant to work with its senior leadership to uphold the organisation’s commitment to racial justice and to operate on antiracist principles.

Whilst we believe a commitment to racial justice is implicit in DOTW’s vision and values, the organisation’s senior leadership team are keen to ensure the organisation operates on anti-racist principles, guaranteeing equal opportunities and outcomes for staff, volunteers and service users and ensuring as an organisation we proactively strive to address structural, institutional and interpersonal racism.

We are seeking a skilled and experienced contractor to support DOTW’s leadership team to achieve this goal. We aim to produce an action plan for the organisation to attain its vision as an anti-racist organisation, which will include a plan to support the governance and senior leadership team build capacity and knowledge to drive forward this work.
