Job description

Your own experience of managing mental health problems and recovery means that you’re good at engaging with, and supporting, others who are experiencing similar difficulties. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Peer Support Worker.

Right now, we are looking for a Peer Support Worker to join our team based in North Shields.  Day-to-day, you will encourage service users, including those hard to reach, with complex needs to engage with the Liaison and Diversion Service as well as other agencies. You will provide engagement, emotional and other support and advocacy and you may also assist in recruiting and overseeing volunteers. The role will involve supporting people to navigate through the Criminal Justice System, to access support for mental health needs as well as other vulnerabilities including substance misuse, (alcohol and drugs), homelessness, intellectual disabilities and behaviours that challenge.

To succeed, you’ll need a good understanding of the recovery and personalisation agenda and the principles and practice on which mental health services are run. Lived experience of the criminal justice system is also essential to this role. You must have a proven ability to consult, liaise and work collaboratively with a team of colleagues and a wide range of external organisations and a flexible approach to working hours. You will be well-organised and self-motivated; good problem-solving and decision-making skills are essential, as is an innate ability to cope with personal stress.

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.
