Description
Our crisis support service, known as Haven, offers a calm and friendly alternative to A&E for people in mental distress 365 days a year. It is available to people who live in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven. Haven is a non-clinical, supportive environment designed to help people in crisis stay safe, work through and understand their feelings, and then support them to access the support they need going forward.

We run this service in partnership with Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and Bradford Metropolitan District Council. We are looking for bank Peer Support Workers to help deliver the service when we need additional staff cover. The role of Peer Support Worker within Haven is to inspire hope and belief that recovery is possible in others. As an integral and highly valued member of the multi-disciplinary team, Peer Support Workers provide practical assistance to clients in order for them to regain control over their lives and their own unique recovery process. They promote choice, self-determination and opportunities for the fulfilment of socially valued roles and connection to local communities.

As a core member of the multidisciplinary team, you will work alongside clients on a 1:1 and/or group basis. You will take a lead role in embedding recovery values within the service setting. Reporting directly to the Senior Peer Support Worker on shift you will be responsible for the delivery of supportive 1:1 interventions.
