You've got a good understanding of mental health issues and really enjoy supporting others to achieve independence and lead their own recovery. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Recovery Worker.
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.
Right now, our Crisis service in Lincoln is looking for someone like you to work with us, supporting individuals through their recovery journey, providing innovative recovery and crisis service interventions. Day-to-day, you will work with individuals to support the development and delivery of 'client led' recovery and safety planning, helping others to regain sustainable control over their challenges and maximise independence. And, when it comes to liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to give people access to a full range of services, again, we'll rely on your expertise.
The chances are, you already work in the mental health field. What is for certain is that you're caring, consistent, flexible and creative, work well under pressure, know how to connect with people at all levels and, like us, are keen to break down the stigma of mental health.
