About the Job
“This Is ME” is an exciting and innovative whole community approach to breaking the cycle of poor physical health, poor mental health and poverty. The project aims to deliver training and facilitate opportunities for residents and organisations within the area to learn more, support each other and become healthier and/or wealthier! This project has scope to move and develop within the stated outcomes, so offers opportunity for the right person to develop the opportunities available in order to achieve the best outcomes.
The project description as stated in the funding application is as follows:
This is a whole community response to breaking the cycle of poor physical and mental health and poverty, the aim of which is to develop and coordinate services to enhance physical and mental health and wellbeing and financial knowledge, skills and security within the local community. These activities enable us to take a fresh look at our local economic challenges and opportunities/assets and plan for a sustainable future where we have the resources, wellbeing and initiative to flourish.
We will coordinate, facilitate and provide training and activities, working together to reduce poverty and increase good physical and mental health and wellbeing. Thus our community
will become more resilient and empowered to make informed choices for a better future.
As a community that experiences high levels of health inequalities, low income, low educational attainment and high levels of unemployment (SIMD) Mayfield and Easthouses has many residents who experience the cycle of poor physical health, poverty and poor mental health.
Recent suicides in the area have highlighted the high suicide rate we experience. The “fallout” from these deaths have led people to articulate the desire to help themselves and each other.
In response to this we have identified a whole community response, whereby each organisation will encourage staff to gain ASIST Training and then use this training to facilitate Suicide Talk training to as many of their clients as possible. Alongside this, we will work to identify key members of the community – barbers, bar staff, taxi drivers and so on, who are willing to undertake the SAFE Talk training with a view to making Mayfield and Easthouses a Suicide Safer Community.
We can see how this model can work to deal with Poverty (Money Advice, Money Management training, Cookery Courses and other relevant training and activities that tackle poverty and money management), physical health (train walk/cycle leaders, work with partners to provide groups/activities that encourage physical activity for all ages) as well as more generic Mental Health issues.
The next step in this project, with these strands of “Healthy ME” and “Wealthy ME”, would be to coordinate and attract services to the local area, working with organisations to encourage use of local venues, ensuring local residents are more aware of the services we have to offer and working to include as many people as possible, as participants in training/awareness raising, groups and classes or both.
We will work towards developing a “Kite Mark” for people and places in the local community so that people know who they can speak to about their mental health, or where they can go for help with debts and money management.
Currently there is a long wait for counselling services throughout our area. We will work to train active listeners and pilot a Listening Service. Initial enquiries suggest that a listening service for people experiencing a range of issues could be a useful resource. Access to this could reduce pressure on counselling services. This also has the potential to develop into a Social Enterprise for our Trust.
All of these activities will work together to make residents healthier, wealthier, more informed, more involved, more employable and more ambitious – for themselves and for their community. With the community as the resource, we have a lot to work with to make this a success
This project could also inform and/or inspire future practice throughout Scotland.
We are looking for an experienced and confident community worker who has experience of project management and delivery of targets. You will be a proactive, problem solver, who isn’t afraid to take risks and who works hard to produce positive results. You will be required to coordinate training opportunities, manage the associated budget, work with staff, volunteers and clients to identify training opportunities, coordinate training and information sessions, manage the associated budget and facilitate group and activity start ups.
A PVG certificate will be required for this post.
