Peer Support Worker

£19,737-£21,142 (Band 3)

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Isle of Wight NHS Trust Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Division, as it embarks on delivering the new Strategy for the Isle of Wight Mental Health and Learning Disability Services, “No Wrong Door”. This Strategy was co-produced with key stakeholders including service users, families and carers, staff, partner organisations including those from the third sector and commissioners.

The Isle of Wight NHS is launching an exciting new Recovery Service from April 2021. The post holder(s) will work with colleagues in the Recovery Service to implement the delivery of effective and sustainable evidenced base clinical pathways (Reablement, Intensive Rehabilitation and Assertive Outreach). The post holder will work as an integral member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team within 1 of 3 localities, helping to support a caseload of service users on their recovery journey. As part of our service development we are seeking to attract highly motivated, enthusiastic individuals with a strong passion and commitment to mental health recovery work who are able to work within a psychologically informed multi-disciplinary team model.

Peer Support Workers are people with lived experience of mental health conditions and mental health services. They use their experiences and empathy to support other people and their families receiving mental health services, and to model recovery. In some instances, Peer Support Workers may continue to be in receipt of services as well as providing a service. This lived experience gives these post holders a unique and extremely valuable insight into the Trust’s services from multiple perspectives. Challenges can arise from having a dual role, for example boundary issues, and having access to information they otherwise wouldn’t if they were not an employee.

All post holders will be appropriately trained and supported to manage these complex issues.

Peer Support Worker

£19,737-£21,142 (Band 3)

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Isle of Wight NHS Trust Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Division, as it embarks on delivering the new Strategy for the Isle of Wight Mental Health and Learning Disability Services, “No Wrong Door”. This Strategy was co-produced with key stakeholders including service users, families and carers, staff, partner organisations including those from the third sector and commissioners.

The Isle of Wight NHS is launching an exciting new Recovery Service from April 2021. The post holder(s) will work with colleagues in the Recovery Service to implement the delivery of effective and sustainable evidenced base clinical pathways (Reablement, Intensive Rehabilitation and Assertive Outreach). The post holder will work as an integral member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team within 1 of 3 localities, helping to support a caseload of service users on their recovery journey. As part of our service development we are seeking to attract highly motivated, enthusiastic individuals with a strong passion and commitment to mental health recovery work who are able to work within a psychologically informed multi-disciplinary team model.

Peer Support Workers are people with lived experience of mental health conditions and mental health services. They use their experiences and empathy to support other people and their families receiving mental health services, and to model recovery. In some instances, Peer Support Workers may continue to be in receipt of services as well as providing a service. This lived experience gives these post holders a unique and extremely valuable insight into the Trust’s services from multiple perspectives. Challenges can arise from having a dual role, for example boundary issues, and having access to information they otherwise wouldn’t if they were not an employee. All staff are bound by the same confidentiality rules, and need to demonstrate the same Trust values as all other employees when at work and outside their immediate work situation. All post holders will be appropriately trained and supported to manage these complex issues.

More information about Peer Support Workers you are welcome to contact our Lived Experience Lead at christa.dilleyston@nhs.net for an informal discussion before applying.
