Job description

Job Summary

To be a key member of Gaddum’s provision of the Getting Help element of Thinking Ahead (the central adult Primary Care Mental Health Pathway in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, in partnership with Big Life Group and Pennine Care NHS Trust).

To provide social and practical support to adults with common mental health conditions virtually and in community settings across Heywood, Middleton & Rochdale (HMR), including assessment of needs, support planning, and onward referrals (external and internal). This may include working with adults that are already in therapy, are awaiting therapy or have recently completed therapy either within Thinking Ahead, or in some cases externally.

Job Purpose

The post holder will work within a multidisciplinary pathway and carry a case load providing 1:1 support across community venues across HMR, and creating support plans for individuals accessing the Getting Help part of the pathway. This will include social prescribing, signposting and onward referrals, as well as assisting individuals overcome barriers which have prevented them from accessing services in the past. The role may also occasionally include group work – and, on occasion, evening and weekend working to suit business needs. Work provided will be within strict timescales in order to manage risk appropriately and prevent dependency on workers.

The role will include collaborative work with the partner organisations within Getting Help, our partners within Thinking Ahead, and other organisations providing support to our client groups across HMR. This includes facilitating community drop-in sessions, working within the community neighbourhood teams, delivering training externally and internally, and presenting around the work delivered by Getting Help.
