Job Description

You've got a good understanding of mental health issues and really enjoy supporting others to achieve independence and lead their own recovery. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Recovery Worker. 

Right now, our Crisis Outreach service in Lancaster is looking for someone like you to work with us, supporting individuals through their recovery journey, providing innovative recovery and crisis service interventions. Day-to-day, you will work with individuals to support the development and delivery of ‘client led’ recovery and safety planning, helping others to regain sustainable control over their challenges and maximise independence.  And, when it comes to liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to give people access to a full range of services, again, we’ll rely on your expertise.

The chances are, you already work in the mental health field. What is for certain is that you're caring, consistent, flexible and creative, work well under pressure, know how to connect with people at all levels and, like us, are keen to break down the stigma of mental health. 

The salary for this post is £17,443 with subsequent progression to £17,980 per annum.

The successful postholder should be a driver with access to a vehicle.

This is a rolling recruitment process, shortlisted candidates will be interviewed as and when they apply.

So, are you ready to take on this rewarding role that comes with some really great benefits, including a smartphone? Apply now via our website.

Richmond Fellowship is part of Recovery Focus, a national group of charities highly experienced in providing specialist support services to individuals and families living with the effects of mental ill health, drug and alcohol use, gambling and domestic violence. We know that recovery can look and feel very different to each and every one of us. But we also know that if we provide the right support, at the right time, we can inspire recovery nationwide and that recovery is possible for everyone.
