We are looking for a talented individual to support our Service Delivery Manager and Peer Support Co-ordinator, to deliver a new arm of Parents in Mind perinatal mental health peer support, across the Peacehaven/Newhaven area – initially until the end of June 2024, but with the possibility of extension, subject to funding. This role is home-based but will require travel (sometimes at short notice) across the Peacehaven area (we are ideally looking for staff and volunteers based across these areas, to contain the travel required), so easy access to transport and a flexible approach to working are essential. The post will each be for 9 hours per week.
You must have good written and oral communication skills and be able to quickly create rapport with volunteers, service users, NCT practitioners and a range of staff from local services. An understanding of mental health support pathways would be helpful too. You must be able to confidently prioritise your own work, be highly organised and able to work independently. In this largely pastoral role, the core of the work will be ensuring Parents in Mind peer supporters are able to provide service users with safe, well-informed and reliable support, so outstanding relationship building skills are vital. Good IT skills will also be required – including use of Outlook, Word and Excel. Ideally you will also have the skills to be able to engage with parents via social media.
It is essential for this post that you are, or undertake the training to become, a Parents in Mind peer supporter. This training requires lived experience/close support of another who has experienced mental health difficulties during the transition to parenthood, and the accredited training would be undertaken in addition to your paid hours.
