Background to the role

The Complex Rehabilitation Service is a new initiative working to find ways “locked-in” Service Users, with complex mental health needs, can be safely and successfully reintroduced back into the communities of West Yorkshire to define, build and live meaningful, independent and satisfying lives. 

Service Users have shared their experiences with us, describing a vision of a community model which is “not just about keeping me safe – it’s about building a life worth living”.

About the role

The post holder will work within a Regional Community Complex Rehabilitation Team.  Together you will support locked-in Service Users to assist with their transition into communities and support them to define, build and live meaningful, independent, and satisfying lives. 

If you feel that you can be part of a new team of peer support workers, working alongside Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust, to help deliver this vision of a new life, then this is the role for you.

Touchstone welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health difficulties for the roles below and the service encourages the use of the wisdom gained through personal ‘lived’ experience, to inspire hope in others and the belief that recovery is possible for all.
