Job description

Does your experience of working with adults with mental health problems include facilitating/leading groups? Would you like to be part of an organisation that counts on the professionalism, insight, expertise and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people they work with? Then join us as an Activities and Wellbeing Support Worker.

Recovery Focus is a new group of expert charities with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between us we have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together we believe we can lead the way in evidence-based recovery pathways, tailored to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for an Activities and Wellbeing Support Worker to join the team at Winston House in Cambridge. An intensive  short-medium term mental health recovery unit, it offers placements to adults with severe and enduring mental health conditions. During the 50 years since it opened, the service has helped many people work through their own recovery and take responsibility back for their lives after living in institutions such as hospitals. But, they rely on the help of people like you.

Your challenge? To help ensure we provide a participative environment and broad range of community based opportunities for our clients, thus enabling them to gain increasing independence and develop their full potential working with principles of recovery. That means planning and delivering a programme of psycho- social, recreational and educational interventions and regularly monitoring and reviewing it. It also means offering practical advice, guidance and emotional support, contributing to individual support plans and signposting clients to a range of community resources. Developing a network of contacts that enable community access will be important too. And, when it comes to supporting the smooth running of the unit or helping individuals to develop peer support networks, again, we'll be counting on you. 

Proven relevant experience is key, as is the ability to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health distress, engage and support people who are experiencing them and apply your transferable life skills to motivate and inspire others. Comfortable working within a team and used to dealing with personal stress, you're great at prioritising and planning a workload too. What’s more, you're committed to Service User Involvement, aware of Health & Safety regulations and Data Protection and confidentiality protocols and willing to work evenings and weekends as required, in order to get the job done.

In return, you can expect some great benefits, including 25 days' annual leave plus statutory bank holidays and a contributory pension scheme after a qualifying period.

This is a permanent role, requiring the post-holder to work 37.5 hours per week.

The salary for this role is £17,504.00, with potential progression to £17,730.00 per annum.

We are committed to increasing our diversity and we would welcome applications from those with lived experience and/or who are from a BAME background.

Closing Date for applications is 8th February 2021. (We reserve the right to close vacancies before the specified closing date, should a large number of applications be received).

So, get inspired today and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career.
