This is an exciting time to be joining Mind and becoming part of the partnership with the Norfolk & Suffolk Mental Health Foundation Trust delivering services within the provision of the Norfolk and Waveney Wellbeing Service. The service is commissioned to help people with mild to moderate mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.  Services are provided across Norfolk and Waveney for people aged 16 and over. The successful applicants will be committed to delivering excellent support to those accessing the Wellbeing Service, be able to work within a team and be responsive and adaptive to change.

This role will sit within the Peer Support Work team, delivering one-to-one and group recovery-focused support to clients within the Wellbeing Service, online and face-to-face. Peer support workers use their lived experience to help clients make sense of their experiences, and help them identify the people, places and strategies that keep them well.

If you would like to use your lived experience of mental health issues to support others, are well organised and have a full drivers license, we would love to hear from you.
