Waking Night Support Worker
Waking Night Support Worker
£9.41 - £9.52 per hour
You've got a good understanding of learning difficulties, autism and mental health issues and really enjoy supporting others to achieve independence and lead their own recovery. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Waking Night Support Worker.
Right now, our Northampton Step Down service is looking for someone like you to join the team. This is a new, bespoke 24-hour service for two men with Mental Health needs and Learning Difficulties who are on the Autistic spectrum. As the Waking Night Recovery Worker, you will be on hand to work with individuals to support the development and delivery of their ‘client led’ recovery and safety plans, helping the people you are supporting to regain sustainable control over their challenges and maximise their independence. And, when it comes to liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to give people access to a full range of services, again, we’ll rely on your expertise.
The chances are, you already work in the mental health field. What is for certain is that you have experience of working with people with Mental Health needs and learning difficulties or ASD. You are caring, consistent, flexible and creative, work well under pressure, know how to connect with people at all levels and, like us, are keen to break down the stigma of mental health.
