Do you want to be part of a team that are passionate about improving mental health and wellbeing?
We’re looking for a bold and caring person to join our Community Development Team, who has experience of working with communities to engage and motivate people to participate in activities.
We want someone who is hardworking, creative, and able to work on their own initiative to roll out our Community Wellbeing Challenge programme, which empowers communities to address issues that impact on wellbeing. You will make connections into communities to promote the programme and engage participants. The focus of the role is to deliver workshops that increase awareness of mental health and wellbeing, supporting participants to identify what exists within their community to support mental wellbeing and what is missing. You will then work alongside participants to create an initiative for their community that helps to build connections and boost wellbeing and resilience.
Ideally, you will have experience of project coordination and delivery of group activities but, above all, we want someone who believes in our vision of a Lancashire where everyone has the opportunity to have the best mental health and wellbeing possible.
Lancashire Mind is committed to fighting racism and other forms of oppression. We want to be a great employer for all our staff, regardless of their background or characteristics. We recognise that not everyone is the same and that different people will require different support to fulfil their potential. We want to ensure Lancashire becomes a place of greater equity and inclusion. One thing we can do to work towards that goal is to ensure that our staff team is representative of the diverse communities across Lancashire, and particularly those communities we know face mental health inequalities. We particularly encourage applications from those communities and from anyone with experience of living with a mental health condition.
