Manchester Mind believes in the power of listening and feeling heard and that a better understanding of mental health benefits everyone.
We do this by providing a range of services across Manchester to young people and adults. A valuable part of this work has been the provision of services to children and young people from our Children and Young People Services offices in Levenshulme. The holistic mix of services delivered includes advice, volunteering, mentoring and counselling. The services have been successfully evaluated and involve young people in design, development and delivery.
Our work is guided by our values of:
Openness | Belonging | Strength | Collaboration
The Service Manager will support staff and play a strategic role in developing the delivery of high quality young people-led services.
We would like to work with someone who is experienced, dynamic and passionate about being able to develop our services for children and young people.
