Job description

Hillside Clubhouse is a dynamic charity in North London supporting people with mental health issues to live lives to the full.  We are passionate about achievement and have a portfolio of services and projects with a focus on social inclusion - especially mainstream employment.

We work to a model of coproduction whereby our service users are known as members and colleagues and we coproduce the daily business functions of the Clubhouse together – known as the Workday Programme.  This helps people develop skills for life and work. You will support members on the programme as well as provide a range of practical and emotional supports that members might need.

The post would appeal to innovative individuals who welcome the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives.  Excellent interpersonal and communication skills will be needed. 

Clubhouse has a unique philosophy where staff work in partnership with members (service users) in the day to day service delivery of the Clubhouse.  The workday programme outlined below is a major tenet of his work and you will be responsible for co-ordinating aspects of this work together with colleagues.

The Clubhouse aims that its

  • Members will have better chances in life through improved life skills, self care and confidence
  • Members will be more active in their local communities through being involved in mainstream work, social networks, training and volunteering
  • Members will maintain good mental and physical health (as measured by abridged recovery questionnaires)
  • Members reduce social isolation and become more independent

Workday Programme

Due to the holistic nature of the Clubhouse Model all workers need to be embedded in core service delivery and the workday programme to develop rapport and maximise members’ potential and outcomes so you will also participate in all aspects of Clubhouse work including the following.

The Clubhouse has two main work units – Administration and Catering.  This post is based in Administration and the postohlder will:

Other tasks

  1. Provide holistic practical and emotional support to members (including support to attend appointments, assisting with benefits, helping with housing, liaison with external professionals including clinical teams and consultants etc).  The postholder does not have to directly provide these supports and should aim to signpost into relevant agencies where possible.  However direct support should be provided if necessary.
  2. Support members in times of crises
  3. Advocate with and on behalf of members to secure entitlements including access to goods and services
  4. Support life skills and rehabilitation based training with colleagues
