Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Suicide Bereavement Support Worker

About the role

Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind and Lambeth & Southwark Mind are highly regarded local charities, helping people to be mentally healthy and working together with those experiencing mental health problems to improve their quality of life.

We are seeking two Suicide Bereavement Support Workers (one employed by each organisation) to play a key role in the delivery of a new suicide bereavement support service across the six Boroughs of South East London. The suicide bereavement service will support people through some of the most difficult experiences of their lives, and in doing so has the potential to be truly life-changing.

The service is a collaboration between the three local Minds in the area and South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

With experience providing support to people who have experienced bereavement, you will need to demonstrate that you have good assessment and support planning skills, communicate effectively and can provide person-centred and culturally relevant support.

How to apply

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

· People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds

· Disabled people

· People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities

· Young people

We are committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people.

We always welcome applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.

Staff benefits include a matched contribution pension scheme and 25 days' holiday.

Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced level Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
