Male Mental Health Project Worker - Alfred Minto House

Job Introduction

Everyone’s Turning Point is unique. It’s the moment when they realise they’ve made a small, but important, step forward. Very often, that small step is the start of something bigger. But only when the right support, advice and services are in place. That’s where you come in.

Alfred Minto House is a well-established specialist residential service that works with ten men with mental health difficulties and forensic histories. We aim to support individuals to continue their journey of recovery in a community setting.

Role Responsibility

Join our friendly team who raise the bar for person–centred support. We provide a range of recovery focused support through key working sessions, activities, one to one sessions and group work. Empowering people to make positive life choices and decisions, your compassionate and non-judgemental approach will guide individuals on their recovery journey.

As a project Worker you will be responsible for your own caseload, formulating person-centred care and support plans, undertaking risk assessments, administering medicine, working closely with multi-disciplinary teams, attending CPA’s and tribunals. In a role where no two days are ever the same you will need to think on your feet, adapt well to change and tailor support to each individual, as no two people are the same. Ultimately, you’ll play a vital role in helping people to gain skills and coping strategies, all while encouraging positive change and independence.

You will be required to work 37 hours per week, in a shift pattern including sleep-ins and weekends. You have one weekend on and one weekend off, rotas are completed at least two months in advance and there is always room for flexibility, providing the needs of the service are met.

The Ideal Candidate

You’ll need previous relevant experience of using a person-centred approach in a mental health setting and a good understanding of the complex needs of individuals we support. You must be capable of prioritising your own workload and using your initiative.  Experience of working with individuals who have forensic histories would be an advantage, yet not essential provided you have had experience in a mental health setting. An effective team player, you will possess good communication skills, a flexible recovery focussed approach, a positive attitude and be able to adapt in a changeable environment.

About us

As a leading health and social care provider with more than 300 locations across England, we take real pride in the services we offer.

Across the varied regions, sectors and settings we operate within, our organisation is held together by a shared vision – and our people are connected by the same values. These include belief in potential, confidence in communication, embracing positive change and always treating each other as individuals.

We run all of our services on a not-for-profit basis; instead, we invest every penny back into our services and people. We never stop believing in change for the better, and we work constantly to improve the lives of the people we support.

Our people bring our vision to life. So, if you are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to support others to fulfilling their potential, here at Turning Point, we don't just offer you a job – we offer you a career.
