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 Safe Haven 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 Safe Haven Worker to join the team. Our Safe Haven is a drop in service for people experiencing a mental health crisis. Our team of professionals and volunteers with experience of mental health problems provide advice, support and information.

Day-to-day, you’ll support individuals to develop emotional management and resilience, personal and life skills to achieve greater independence and self-esteem.  Linking into and liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to support people in accessing a full range of services will also be a key element of the role.

A great listener, with a flexible approach and a flair for planning and prioritising a busy workload, you enjoy 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. Experience of identifying and coordinating a range of services to meet an individual’s needs and to enable them to engage with community activities is also essential.  

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