Changing Faces is on the cusp of an exciting revisioning and redefinition of our 1-1 and clinical model across the service for people with a condition, mark or scar that affects their appearance (visible difference). We are seeking a qualified, innovative and experienced Adult Wellbeing Practitioner to deliver 1-1 and other wellbeing interventions to support the needs of people across the UK.
The main purpose of the role is:
- To deliver 1-1 counselling, support and peer interventions to adults with visible difference across the UK
- To collaborate with the team to revision, redefine and embed our new 1-1 and clinical model across the service
- To build awareness and promote the service across the UK to maximise the reach and impact for adults with visible difference
We are always looking for talented people from all backgrounds to join us and help improve the lives of people with visible differences. Changing Faces is committed to achieving greater staff diversity. We welcome applications from people from all sections of the community irrespective of race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief. In line with our commitments to race equity, we are particularly seeking applications from people of colour/ people from BAME backgrounds. We actively encourage people with a visible difference to apply. We are also always open to conversations about flexible working.
Changing Faces is the UK’s leading charity for everyone who has a mark, scar or condition that makes them look different (a visible difference). Being different in a society where there is such pressure to look a certain way is extremely difficult.
People with visible differences are vulnerable to isolation, loneliness, social anxiety and low self-esteem. They face staring, unwanted attention and even bullying and hate crime. They experience lowered expectations in education, problems getting work and stereotyping in the media. This can have a devastating, and lasting, impact on their wellbeing. Adults often come to us, having never spoken to anyone about the psychological impact of their visible difference before.
Changing Faces provides unique practical, social and emotional support for people affected by visible difference; we challenge discrimination and campaign for a world that respects difference.
Our Wellbeing services build confidence and resilience – giving people the tools to manage their feelings, cope in different social settings, handle other people’s reactions or deal with life, education, work and relationships. We are going through an important period of change and development in the Wellbeing Services – embarking on a revisioning and redefinition of our 1-1 and clinical model across the service and launching our national children and young people’s model.
Changing Faces wants a future where everyone with a visible difference on their face or body has the confidence, support and opportunity to lead the lives they want.
