Due to the continuing expansion of the Living Well team in Salford, START are excited to be advertising two new fixed term positions to join our organisation as part of the Multi-Disciplinary Team.

We are looking for 2 x Full Time Recovery Workers fixed term until March 2024.

The Living Well programme is designed to help people to think differently about mental health support in Salford bringing together people from statutory and VCSE settings, including peers with lived experience in order to design and launch this new offer.

Living Well helps us to think differently about mental health support. It helps us to focus on people’s skills, aspirations and experiences to build a different way of offering support and help.

Living Well focuses on developing new ways for people to access support that:

• Listens and recognises people’s strengths and potential

• Is easy to access;

• Is located within community settings and dedicated ‘Listening Lounges’;

• Helps to stop difficult times from getting worse

• Supports people with relationships, housing, debt and employment

• Is provided by communities, including voluntary sector, social enterprises and statutory services.

This is a really exciting time to join the Living Well Multi-Disciplinary team and these new roles will play an important part in supporting people seeking help in community ‘Listening Lounges.’

We are looking for people passionate about helping others, who are experienced working within mental health and are excited to embark on a role which looks at new ways of working with people.
