Do you have an understanding of mental health issues or experience of working in mental health? Would you like to be part of an organisation that counts on the professionalism, insight, expertise and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people they work with? Then join us as a Casual Recovery Worker.

Recovery Focus is a new group of expert charities with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between us we have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together we believe we can lead the way in evidence-based recovery pathways, tailored to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a Casual Recovery Worker to work on a ‘as needed basis’ to join the team at their crisis service in Lancashire. Willow House, our Central Lancashire Crisis House. provides a relaxing and tranquil environment to support people during a time of mental health crisis. Our service offers short term placements for up to seven days. Individuals will work with our team of experienced Recovery Workers on a tailored support plan to help manage their mental health and develop effective coping strategies.

You’ll support individuals to develop emotional management and personal life skills to achieve greater independence and self-esteem. 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.

A great listener, with a flexible approach and a flair for planning and prioritising a busy workload, you love motivating and engaging people in a range of developmental and rehabilitative activities. What’s more, you have a good understanding of mental health issues and how they affect people.  You will also need to be willing to participate in a 24/7 rota that includes waking nights and sleep-ins. 

So, get inspired today. Visit our website and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career
