Bury Involvement Group (BIG) is a mental health charity led by people with personal experience of mental and emotional distress. BIG is commissioned locally to provide the Bury Peer Led Crisis Service which provides an out of hour’s crisis support service, in the community, for adults experiencing mental health crisis. The service provides person centred support in a non-clinical environment which is led by a team with personal experience of mental and emotional distress. The service forms part of a new partnership between us, and local Pennine Care Foundation Trust services, to provide a responsive crisis service to individuals in distress within the area.

As a Welcome Home Supporter you will interact, communicate and build relationships based on mutuality with adults experiencing mental health crisis. You will provide face to face, and occasional telephone, emotional support to individuals leaving the mental health inpatients unit in Bury, supporting them throughout the discharge process back into the community.

You will keep a record of contact and outcomes to report and provide monitoring and evaluation data supported by the Service Lead.

We are looking for individuals who have experience of working with people at risk of suicide and self-injury. We are looking for a reflective individual with a demonstrable ability to build positive therapeutic relationships with adults experiencing mental health crisis. You will need to be able to communicate with visitors clearly and effectively using non-clinical language. You will need to have proven experience supporting adults with mental health conditions using recovery orientated approaches. You will need to be able to work effectively as part of a team, while being highly organised and planning and prioritising your work.

Our team is friendly, supportive, and committed to our mission of empowering adults with mental health conditions towards recovery and improved quality of life. You will be integral to the continued development of a well-respected local mental health charity that makes a real difference to people’s lives.
