MONEY AND MENTAL HEALTH
NEW CHARITY PARTNERSHIP FOR SCOTLAND
Support in Mind Scotland has been supporting people affected by serious mental health problems, including family members, friends and carers, for over 40 years, and we are delighted to be offering 3 new exciting opportunities for energetic and dedicated individuals who want to work with us to change people’s lives.
Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) has chosen Mental Health UK as its charity partner for 2 years from January 2017. Mental Health UK brings together four national mental health organisations: Support in Mind Scotland, Hafal in Wales, Rethink in England and MindWise in Northern Ireland
Our partnership is aiming to make a huge difference to the lives of people with mental health problems who are struggling to cope with money issues; and those for whom lack of money and struggling with financial issues is having a major impact on their mental health. We aim to do this by setting up a dedicated, specialist money and mental health helpline and website, with some face to face support, staffed by people with the combined knowledge and expertise needed to give all-round holistic support.
All posts are based in Edinburgh but may involve travel throughout Scotland and other parts of the UK. The closing date for each post is Friday April 21st. For telephone enquiries, please contact Liz Mackay, (Office Supervisor) on 0131 662 4359 or email email@example.com.
Please note that CVs will not be considered.
MENTAL HEALTH AND MONEY ADVICE SERVICE
£28,866 per annum
35 hours per week
Funded to end of March 2019
Based in Edinburgh
Do you have the energy and commitment to work with us to change people’s lives?
If so, then this is a huge opportunity to take on a pivotal role in a new service that will be as rewarding for you as it will be beneficial for the people who need our help.
People who experience mental health problems and mental illness still face huge barriers to inclusion and equality and one of the most significant barriers is dealing with money issues including coping with debt, housing issues, the benefits system and even just surviving on low income.
We also know worrying about money and debt has a devastating impact on people’s mental wellbeing, and people can find themselves struggling to cope as their situation seems to be spiralling out of control.
This new Money and Mental Health Service aims to stop this spiral by bringing together the 2 specialist areas of money advice and mental health awareness in one dedicated telephone and email and ‘virtual face to face’ helpline for the whole of Scotland.
The post holder will oversee the development of this new helpline, and should be an experienced money advice professional, with some experience of managing/supervising staff. The person should ideally also have some knowledge of mental health issues although training will be provided.
