Description
In partnership with Airedale General Hospital and Bradford Teaching Hospitals, we are building on our Safer Spaces work to deliver additional peer support in the acute hospital based in A&E as well as supporting discharge into the community. This will help to ensure that people can get the right support at the right time, as well as helping to raise awareness of alternatives to A&E.  

We are looking for a part-time Peer Support Workers to deliver this ground-breaking work and work as part of our Multi-Agency Support Team (MAST) - alongside Psychiatric Liaison Nurses, personal support navigators, alcohol workers, social workers and the wider urgent care team. You will support individuals who have attended A&E in emotional distress, providing one-to-one peer support within the hospital. You will coordinate additional support by working closely with the discharge teams within the hospital for those patients who may require some short-term support within the community for their mental health, substance use or frailty, aligning them to the correct workers within the MAST team. The job will also include outreach work to clients, working with the community-based team to provide person-centred support within their own environment.  

You will have experience of delivering peer support, be flexible, be passionate about mental health and committed to partnership working. This is a short-term contract so we need individuals to start as quickly as possible.
