Touchstone: Mental health support worker - Connecting Opportunities

Job title: Mental health support worker - Connecting Opportunities
Organisation: Touchstone
Location: Leeds
Salary: £22,183 pa/pro rata
Additional information: 18.5 hours per week, fixed term until March 2023
Closing date: midnight on 07 July 2021


Touchstone is looking for a mental health support worker to work on the Connecting Opportunities project. 

Connecting Opportunities works with new migrants to develop their skills and opportunities to find work and be part of the local community. Ten organisations that specialise in working with migrants are offering tailored support, cultural orientation, English language classes and other training across West Yorkshire and part of North Yorkshire [Craven, Harrogate, Selby and York]. The project is also creating new local connections, with opportunities for local people to be volunteer mentors and befrienders, and for employers to provide work placements to help people get a foothold in the job market.

Touchstone provides mental health support to Connecting Opportunities participants across Leeds city region. This post will include travel across Kirklees, Calderdale, Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield, York, Harrogate, Selby and Craven.

In this role you will provide mental health support for any participant experiencing mental health issues which present a barrier to employment progression. There is likely to be a range of issues and relatively high need owing both to experiences before they left their country of origin and because of current isolation, marginalisation and other circumstances.

How to apply:

Interviews will be held on 22 July 2021. 

For more information and how to apply, please visit Touchstone's vacancy page.

Touchstone is a registered charity, registration no 1012053.

Connecting Opportunities is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund.logos
