Social Prescribing Link Coordinator - Child Mental Health

 
Area: Sevenoaks
Working Hours: 37.5 hours
Salary:    Up to £26,000    
 
 

Children’s mental health matters!

   
 
More and more children and young people are experiencing difficulties with their own mental health. There is no single solution, and we all need to work together to ensure young people can access the help they need and lead healthier and happier lives.

   

Working alongside GP practices, Social Prescribing Link Coordinators help children and families connect with health and community services which will make a real difference to the child’s emotional and physical wellbeing.

   

You will deliver personalised support to patients, independently managing new referrals from GP practices and a caseload. It’s essential that you have an understanding of how to prioritise need, and are able to recognise when to refer on to specialist services, and must be confident to communicate at all levels across health and social care sectors. 

   

We are looking for someone who is organised, proactive and able to establish instant rapport with children and young people. You should have experience of working with children, delivering mental health support and a background in education, medical or social care.

   

You will need to demonstrate a robust knowledge of confidentiality, data protection, safeguarding and boundaries in all aspects of your work. The post covers Sevenoaks so a car driver is essential.

     

The right support can make a difference to a child now and for their future. 

   

We offer our employees:

  • Inclusive values-based environment
  • Competitive remuneration package
  • Workplace pension scheme
  • Generous 31 days annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays
  • Benenden Health Care
  • Death in Service Benefit
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Employee Supported Volunteering scheme
  • Development opportunities
  • and more
