Job description

Mind in Croydon and Croydon BME Forum have formed an exciting new partnership to deliver on an innovative new project. The Health and Wellbeing Spaces in Croydon is provided and managed through a partnership between Mind in Croydon and the Croydon BME Forum to deliver on an innovative new project. During the period of 1 March 2022 – 31 March 2023 all staff working in the Croydon Health and Wellbeing Space who are employed by Croydon BME Forum have been temporary seconded to Mind in Croydon.

We are looking for a Trainee Domestic Abuse Support Worker who will receive training and support to develop their skills into the role over a period of time. The training will include going on a Level 3 Independent Domestic Violence Advocate (IDVA) course, so the person can become qualified at this level.

The Service provides access to clinical support as well as advice, information and support to enable people to overcome barriers to manage their mental health and independence, including access to welfare benefits, housing, money and debt management, education, training and employment, including support in times of crisis. The service aims to provide better access to mental health services and support for people who have not previously engaged with support, including BME communities. Service Users can self-present at the Space (without a need for referral) during the service core opening hours, or alternatively, be formally referred by Central Croydon Health / Mental Health clinical teams, and other Third Sector Organisations.

The multi-disciplinary team during the initial one-year test period will inform the development and growth of the Health and Wellbeing Space to meet local needs and to ensure that it can support community-based mental health and wellbeing across the whole population and in all 6 Integrated Care Network Plus localities by 2023.

As a Health and Wellbeing Space Trainee Domestic Abuse Support Worker your primary responsibility will be to provide intervention to those who are affected by sexual, domestic and family violence. The role will be the voice of the BME community and to represent those people affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence. This will include risk assessment and safety planning, crisis support, case management and ongoing domestic abuse support. The successful candidate will receive all the support and training needed to develop their skills for the role. They will also need to develop positive working relationships with a variety of agencies to ensure successful signposting and integration of services for clients. They will manage a caseload of individuals as agreed with the Health and Wellbeing Space Manager. In addition to casework, the role will be expected to assist with reception and initial referrals in the Space when required and will also support Space volunteers.

If you have experience of working directly with people to support their mental health, are resilient, and enjoy working in partnerships in local communities, and are looking for a great development opportunity, we’ll look forward to hearing from you.

The Health and Wellbeing Space team will ensure that support is person-centred; focussed on supporting recovery; that needs, and wishes are identified by people themselves; that they have a stronger voice in relation to issues that affect their lives; and that they are supported and empowered to improve and/or maintain their mental health and wellbeing and to live their best independent lives.

Mind in Croydon and Croydon’s BME Forum is an equal opportunities employer. No job applicant or employees will be discriminated against unlawfully on the grounds of race, colour, creed, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sex, marital status or on the grounds of disability or sexual preference.

To apply please send your CV and a Covering Letter explaining:

  • Why you would like to apply for this role?
  • How your skills and experience relate to the competencies in the Person Specification of the job description?
