The Mental Health Peer Support Worker will use lived experience and knowledge, acquired through their own experiences of mental health issues and care services, to give people facing similar challenges in the Rochdale Borough the right level of support and respect. This is a full-time position however we will also consider job share.

  • Supporting people who have anxieties around engaging with services, helping people to navigate care and think about their preferences and options.
  • Facilitating peer-led support groups and promoting peer opportunities within community settings, including Rochdale and District Mind.
  • Assisting with shaping culture, practice and new ideas for services within the community, based on lived experiences.
  • Supporting individuals who use mental health and emotional wellbeing services, including Rochdale and District Mind’s services, promoting their rights and acting as a facilitator, connector and/or navigator for the person they support.
