Job description

The Welcome Home Crisis Supporter

Closing Date Monday Sunday 21st Nov 2021

Bury Involvement Group (BIG) is a mental health charity led by people with personal experience of mental health distress. We are excited to have secured funding allowing for a new role for a Welcome Home Crisis Supporter, who will join the Bury Peer Led Crisis Service, our person centred, non-clinical, community mental health crisis support service for adults in mental and emotional crisis. 

The Welcome Home Crisis Supporter will provide support to adults in Bury who are on the inpatient unit. They will work alongside these people to understand and respond to their needs, build a relationship, and support them as they move back into the community. They will play a key role in supporting people through the transition from hospital and community - by providing them with a safe and consistent therapeutic relationship along their journey.

The Welcome Home Crisis Supporter will interact, communicate, and build relationships based on mutuality with adults in mental health crisis, drawing on their own personal experiences. They will provide face to face, and occasional telephone, emotional support to individuals whilst they are on the inpatient unit and when they are in the community. They will work collaboratively with individuals supporting people to access the right support from wider agencies and partners to support their recovery. The Welcome Home Crisis Supporter will work alongside the Bury Peer Led Crisis Service to facilitate a drop-in service within the community. They will keep a record of contacts and outcomes to report and provide monitoring and evaluation data supported by the Service Lead.

We know that the individuals who are discharged from the inpatient unit often struggle once they are back in the community. This role is a major step within the area to improve the experience of people who are facing significant mental and emotional distress. With this we are looking to get the right person for the role who can make this project a success. 

We are looking to recruit someone with experience of working with people with mental health problems, who themselves has personal experience of mental distress. Ideally you will have experience working with people who have experienced inpatient services, suicidality, and self-injury. You will be a reflective, empathic, and genuine, and have demonstratable ability to build positive therapeutic relationships with adults experiencing mental and emotional distress. You will need to be able to communicate with visitors clearly and effectively using non-clinical language. 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 supporting adults with mental health conditions towards their recovery. 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.

  • 35 hours a week
  • £26,390.04 actual
  • 12 month fixed term contract - with the option of this being extended beyond this date dependent on the long term commissioning of the project.
  • Annual Leave entitlement of 28 days (plus 3 Bank Holidays)
  • Fully paid training
  • Clinical Supervision paid for

Interviews will take place the week commencing 22nd November.

If you would like to discuss the role, please contact the charity and request Jordan Fahy (Chief Officer).
