Job description


Safe Haven Practitioner  – Worcestershire 

1 x 14hrs per week (£11.17 per hour) 

Can you offer you a listening ear, support, and information to help others manage through the difficult times?

The Safe Haven is based in Redditch town centre and provides emotional support to individuals who are experiencing high levels of mental health distress. Support is delivered both over the phone and face-to-face so practitioners must have the skills and ability to switch between both methods.

In addition to providing that safe space to talk, we work with callers to create wellness plans that support them to identify triggers and coping mechanisms. We also provide tailored signposting information and onwards referrals where appropriate.

The Safe Haven operates Monday – Friday 6pm – 1am, Sat – Sun 9am – 1am 365 days of the year. Shifts are worked on a rota basis across the 7 days of the week. These two posts are to be worked 6pm-1am.

Further information about the Safe Haven can be found on our website.

Interviews are being arranged as suitable applications are received.
