Together is an amazing place to work. And its not just because were one of the UKs oldest and most respected mental health charities. Its because we put the people who use our services at the heart of everything we do supporting and enabling them to take control of their lives and make a positive contribution to the community.

Together for Mental Wellbeing is a national charity working alongside people with mental health issues on their journey towards independent and fulfilling lives. The individuals who use our services are at the heart of everything we do. They influence and shape the support they receive from us, and the way our services are run. Our vision is a world where each individual can play their part in breaking down the barriers that exist through ignorance and lack of understanding, and where everyone can live their life without prejudice.

Norfolk County Council set out to transform the provision of mental health services across Norfolk. Together for Mental Wellbeing was successful in gaining the contract to provide a combined supported living, outreach and floating support service and will be delivering this in partnership with Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind, St Martins, West Norfolk Mind and Great Yarmouth & Waveney Mind across Norfolk.

We require experienced individuals to join a new exciting and innovative team to provide psychologically-informed, recovery focused support to people with mental health and complex needs.

You will need to develop and use skills and knowledge to support people accessing the service to manage their mental health, improve physical health, build support networks and engage with specialist services.   

The role will require working flexibly and remotely as part of a geographically-spread team, including daily local travel within the service locality and, where appropriate, working within wider localities across Norfolk to support the demand and capacity requirements of the Norfolk-wide Integrated Housing and Community Support Service.

Undertake daytime and evening duties as appropriate by role, including some weekends, and bank holidays.
