With an annual turnover of £5M, over 150 staff and 200 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network

Bromley Community Wellbeing Hub will form part of the new transformation of mental health services in the London Borough of Bromley under the NHS Long Term Plan. The service will bring together the expertise of local primary, secondary and voluntary sector mental health care providers with the aim of providing flexible, holistic and integrated services for adults with mental health problems.  

We are looking for people with experience of working within mental health services, including to support prevention, recovery and self-management. Applicants should have experience of completing assessments, managing a diverse caseload and working in a busy work environment, and possess effective skills in communication.

• Undertaking holistic needs and risk assessments

• People aged 16-25

• Disabled people

• People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities

BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people.
