We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We exist to ensure that people with mental health problems get support and respect.
People experiencing multiple disadvantage face a combination of problems including homelessness, substance misuse, contact with the criminal justice system and mental ill health. They fall through the gaps between services and systems, making it harder for them to address their problems and lead fulfilling lives.
Mind is part of the Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) coalition, alongside Homeless Link, Clinks and Collective Voice. MEAM facilitates partnerships between different sectors and service providers, helping them to design and deliver better coordinated interventions that improve the lives of people facing multiple disadvantage and create lasting changes to local systems. We also draw on our shared knowledge and practical experience to change policy, so that everyone experiencing multiple needs can reach their full potential and contribute to their communities.
As a Partnerships Manager for London and the South East, you’ll be part of the wider MEAM Local Networks Team, Partnerships Managers based within Mind, Clinks and Homeless Link covering other regions across England. You’ll be responsible for supporting around nine cross-sector local area partnerships across London and the South East of England.
To be successfully recruited into this role, you’ll need to have significant specialist knowledge of mental health and the role of the mental health sector in supporting people facing multiple disadvantage. You will also have substantial understanding of the impact of homelessness, criminal justice, substance misuse and mental health and the role of these services in people’s recovery and demonstrable experience of influencing frontline services and local decision makers. You’ll need to be able to travel regularly throughout London and the South East as part of the day-to-day delivery of the role.
If this sounds like you, then we look forward to hearing from you.
