Funding for this post comes from a successful application to the UK Government's Tampon Tax Fund to create a mental health and wellbeing service. The aim of this service is to offer a free support and counselling service for those most in need to enable them to better manage their mental health and minimise the impact on their well-being. This service will be accessed on-line, text chat, face to face and in a group setting.
The post holder will be a member of a multidisciplinary team providing support for single parent families and their children.
The Family Support Worker will be responsible to the Local Family Support Service Manager for the provision of 1:1 support and group programmes for single parents which, adopting a psychoeducational approach, will improve outcomes for their families.
Referrals to the service will be from within the OPFS team, other professionals and self-referrals.
