About the role

We are working in partnership with Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to deliver the Greenwich Community Wellbeing Hub. This will form part of the new transformation of mental health services in the Royal Borough of Greenwich under the NHS Long Term Plan. The service will bring together the expertise of local primary, secondary and voluntary sector mental health care providers with the aim of providing flexible, holistic and integrated services for adults with mental health problems.

The integrated team will provide support to people with long-term mental health problems within a primary care and community mental health setting, helping people develop their independence, self-management skills and achieve their recovery goals.

We are looking for people to deliver recovery-orientated peer support to adults 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.

The role will involve:

  • Working with a 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 workforce, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:

  • People from culturally diverse communities
  • People aged 16-25
  • 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

Closing date: Monday 14th February (11:59pm)

BLG Mind and Bridge Support offer flexibility for hybrid working (some days at home and some in the office) where this supports staff wellbeing and fits with the needs of clients and the charities. As people-focused organisations, we expect all staff to spend regular time at their work base as part of these arrangements.
