Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind is a highly regarded local charity, helping people to be mentally healthy and working together with those experiencing mental health problems and dementia to improve their quality of life. With an annual turnover of £7M, over 180 staff and 260 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network.
The Lewisham Dementia Support Hub is an exciting service delivered by a consortium of local providers working in partnership:
- MindCare Dementia Support, the specialist dementia arm of Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind
- Carers Lewisham
- Sydenham Garden
- SLAM NHS Foundation Trust
The Hub provides comprehensive person-centred support to people with dementia and their carers, alongside training, raising awareness and community development to improve the experience of people with dementia.
We are expanding our support to include a new Befriending Service. This service will provide Befriending within the community and in the homes of our clients living with a dementia diagnosis. As the primary first point of contact for the service, the Befriending Administrator will have good customer service and communication skills, experience of working collaboratively in a team and some knowledge of dementia. They will also be well organised and have good IT skills.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a dynamic, collaborative and friendly team. Some experience of working within community-based services and working with volunteers is desirable but not essential.
We recognise the importance of having a diverse and inclusive work force, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:
- People from culturally diverse communities
- Disabled people
- People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities
- Young people
BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people and always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.
Staff benefits include a matched contribution pension scheme, 25 days' holiday (pro-rata, rising with service), quality supervision and training opportunities. See our website for more reasons to work for Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind.
