Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind - Peer Support Coordinator

About the role

We are looking for a well-organised person with good communication skills and lived experience of mental health problems. You will coordinate and deliver recovery-orientated peer support to people with long-term mental health problems. This support will enable individuals to access community groups, attend appointments, and generally get them more involved in the community. A future vision will be to recruit and train volunteers to undertake this work as well.

The role will involve:

  • Line managing Peer Support Workers
  • Recruiting and supporting Peer Support Volunteers
  • Working with a small caseload of clients to provide recovery-orientated peer support to adults with mental health problems
  • Collaborative working with all partners involved in the Community Wellbeing Hub
  • Commitment to regular training and supervision
  • Effective contribution to the development and continuous improvement of the service

BLG Mind and Bridge Support recognise the importance of having a diverse and inclusive work force, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:

  • People from culturally diverse communities
  • Young people
  • Disabled people
  • People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities

Both organisations are committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people, and welcome applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.  Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced Level Disclosure and Barring Service check
