Job description

Do you work well in a team and believe in the social model of disability?  Can you build and sustain relationships with customers based on mutuality and peer support?  Do you enjoy managing a varied caseload of people and working in a person centred and empowering way?  Then this could be the role you’re looking for.

We are looking to employ a passionate, motivated individual with excellent communication and people skills to join our Touchpoint Team as one of two Touchpoint Peer Workers. Launched in October 2018, Touchpoint supports people experiencing any form of disability in Barnet to access the services and resources they need so they can live the life they want to live.

As a Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisation, we aim to work with people as equal partners to support positive change.  You will have your own lived experience of disability, a long term condition or mental health issues, and be able to use the knowledge this brings you to empower other people overcome the barriers they’re facing.

You may have experience in a related role, perhaps in the advice or advocacy sector, but you may come from a different sector, bringing a host of transferable skills.

The role is 35 hours a week. Currently it involves a mixture of home working (due to COVID) and office working from our modern, open plan office in Barnet and Southgate College, Colindale.  The successful candidate will enjoy working in a Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisation with an enthusiastic and friendly team of colleagues.

To apply, send your CV plus a detailed covering letter explaining how you would use your own lived experience of disability or a long term condition or mental health issue to provide meaningful peer support.

6 month contract, with the possibility of renewal subject to funding.  The successful candidate will need to undergo a DBS check. 

Inclusion Barnet is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) number 1158632.
