North Lancashire Community Inclusion Service is commissioned by Lancashire County Council NHS Fylde & Wyre and Morecambe Bay Hospitals Clinical Commissioning Group and will provide person centred, flexible support for people with mental health needs to develop their independence, confidence and skills, enabling them to meaningfully access their community, providing people with the opportunities to develop networks of support and activities. The service will provide focused interventions in ordinary community settings.
We are looking for a Recovery and Inclusion Worker to enable service users to promote their independence and wellbeing through regular one to one visits, ensuring service users are receiving person-centred practical support, developing skills and confidence to participate in the community. You will work alongside our Community Inclusion Manager and the Community Inclusion Team to provide an outcome-focused Inclusion Service for service users with mental health needs over the age of 16.
We are looking to develop the service, so as a Recovery and Inclusion Worker you will enable service users to develop and access community initiatives. You will take an asset based community development approach, concentrating on the positive assets already available in the local community and signposting people on accordingly. You will work with the wider team to ensure the service is accessible for all across North Lancashire, including people with protected characteristics and hard to engage groups.
The role calls for someone with excellent written and verbal communication skills, you will also need good organisational skills and an ability to prioritise work based on deadlines. You'll be a warm, engaging person with a proven track record in making links with community groups and other organisations. This is an exciting and challenging role.
