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.
Our new Hospital to Home Service works closely with Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to support hospital discharges and enable patients to feel settled and supported in their community.
This is an incredibly rewarding role where you will have the opportunity to improve the lives of your clients, to give them hope and direction. You will support their recovery journey by enabling them to settle more quickly into their homes and communities.
You’ll need to be organised, resilient, empathetic, adaptable and dedicated to supporting the adjustment from hospital to home in a smooth transition. As a people person, you’ll build good rapport with your clients, gaining a real understanding of their key needs and their aspirations, and support them to achieve their goals.
The Senior Peer Support Worker will line-manage two part-time Peer Support Workers and possibly some Peer Support Volunteers.
Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced level Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

- 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.
