Background and Context

There are not many people who can say that their job changes and saves lives. At Mind in Bradford and the Cellar Trust we can. We are two local mental health charities which have been delivering services in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven for many years but we are always looking for new ways to innovate – finding more and different ways to support the people who need us.

In partnership with Airedale General Hospital and Bradford Teaching Hospitals, this winter we are building on our Safe Space work to deliver additional peer support for people who frequently use A&E due to emotional distress. 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 Worker to deliver this ground breaking work and work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. You will have experience of delivering peer support, 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.
