Job description

Touchstone (registered charity No. 1012053) is a leading voluntary sector agency providing high quality services to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

Safe Haven Deputy Manager
NJC Scale Points 26 – 28, starting at £30,451 pa / pro rata
30 hours per week

Leeds first 24/7 non-medical residential crisis service opportunities

Background to the role

Safe Haven is an exciting new development for Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service and Touchstone as the first of our crisis services to be open 24 / 7. Unlike LSLCS’ other services (which are all self-referral), Safe Haven will be accessed via Leeds NHS Crisis Resolution and Intensive Support Service, and the Older People’s Support and Intensive Home Treatment Team (for those aged over 65).

Leeds Safe Haven will be open 24/7 to provide an alternative to hospital admission for people in acute mental health crisis. The service will have space for 6 guests (who may stay for up to one week) and 4 day visitors (who will come only in the day time, again for up to 7 days). The service will be staffed by a manager and deputy manager, a team of approximately 18 crisis support workers, and an inclusion worker (with a focus on outreach to disadvantaged groups).

About the role

The role of the deputy manager (Safe Haven) is to provide support to the LSLCS Manager in providing leadership and support to the Safe Haven Crisis Support team, as well as to lead on issues of diversity, inclusion and accessibility and to line manage the Touchstone Inclusion worker.

In 2018 Touchstone with LYPFT completed research around Mental Health hospital admissions. The research demonstrated that Black people were 240 times more likely to be detained under the mental Health Act, 1983, in Leeds. As a result, this post will also have a focus on reducing health inequalities, focusing on disparities and seeking ways to reduce these. The successful candidate will have an understanding of discrimination issues and specifically issues of racism and Islamophobia in Mental Health services. 

  • Leading on accessibility issues and operational delivery with support of the manager and safe haven inclusion worker.
  • Hours: 30 hours per week (mostly during the day, but with some evening attendance at evening meetings and occasional shifts in the crisis house.), plus 1 x 3 hour monthly reflective practice and team meeting, which occurs on the second Wednesday or third Monday 6:30pm-9:30pm.

Closing date: 9 February 2021
Interview date: 23 February 2021
