We’re hiring a mental health professional
Come work for an award-winning local charity specialising in community and resident-led engagement!
As our new Community Connector you’ll support people with mental health issues to link with their communities and enjoy health and wellbeing activities.
You will be part of a strong and supportive team at VCH and at East London Foundation Trust, supporting people with severe mental health issues to access appropriate services on finance, housing, and employment, but also activities in their local area that meet their wider needs and interests.
You may also support them to volunteer in a local charity, to develop their own activities or social action projects, such as leading their own walking group or coffee morning and help them to meet local people.
As a Community Connector, you will become a local expert, gathering and sharing information about local opportunities, activities, and support, bringing people together and supporting them to remain confident and independent in their everyday lives. You will be led by individuals themselves, to develop a personalised programme of support, building on their own personal strengths and assets.
The programme is funded by East London NHS Foundation Trust, managed by Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest, and you will be part of a multi-disciplinary neighbourhood team, working closely with mental health services and key health and social care services, as well as local community and voluntary sector partners.
