Project Worker – Wellbeing Centres

Main

The Wellbeing Centres provide recovery focussed courses and creative approaches to people experiencing mental health challenges

We’re looking for someone who can provide life changing support to people who are living with anxiety, depression and other forms of mental distress.  You will be part of a small team who provide safe spaces so that people can heal, understand, gain control and move on with renewed meaning and purpose in life.

We provide a variety of groups and activities but for this role, we’re looking for someone who has skills and experience to lead on digital approaches to wellbeing.  Who can support people to become digitally enabled, to connect with others and feel less socially isolated.

Experience of supporting adults with mental health challenges and enhanced digital skills are essential. But what is just as important is a ‘can do’ attitude, a solid value base and the ability to work as part of a team. We hope that the digital skills you bring to this role will ensure that we operate and maintain efficient record keeping, monitoring and information sharing systems.

This is a great opportunity to be innovative and creative, and to be part of a small team who make a real difference to people’s lives.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

  • To assist in the planning and facilitation of groups for the people we support
  • To lead on ways to digitally enable the people we support
  • To undertake Wellbeing Plan Assessments and to provide support and guidance to enable people to meet their goals and aspirations
