Youth Support Worker
Greater Manchester Crisis Care Pathway
New services. New opportunities. An exciting future.
Across Greater Manchester at least £13 million is being invested in transforming mental health care for children and young people.
The Greater Manchester Crisis Care Pathway will see lots of new and improved services.
We need exceptional and passionate staff on board to make sure young people receive the very best care and can reach their full potential.
Four new rapid response teams are being created. These will provide assessment and case management to young people who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The teams will also offer intensive post-crisis support to children, young people and families.
If successful, you will mainly work in one area of Greater Manchester – and you can specify your preference (see below). Sometimes there will also be a need to work across the whole of Greater Manchester, which will offer you a great opportunity to develop your skills and experience.
About the role
You will have the opportunity to make huge improvements in how crisis care is experienced by children, young people and those who care for them. You will be at the heart of a well-funded, well-organised and hugely valued service.
We are committed to providing accessible, high quality and recovery-focused care. This care will be tailored to meet the all-round needs of every young person.
Working with us will be enormously rewarding, as you will be making a real difference to the lives of young people and families when they are at their most vulnerable.
The new crisis care pathway enjoys a high degree of national and local recognition and interest. So, in addition to providing great care, you will also have the opportunity to get involved in service-based research and to present at conferences and other high profile events.
You will also receive a structured induction and comprehensive training programme, along with a range of benefits.
How to apply
Four Teams will operate across Greater Manchester:
- North (covering Bury, Rochdale and Oldham)
- South (covering Tameside and Glossop, Stockport and Trafford)
- Central (covering Manchester and Salford)
- West (covering Bolton and Wigan)
If you would like to work in a particular team, you can apply for that specific job.
However, if you are flexible about which team you want to work in, you can apply for any role. You only need to apply once though.
If you are shortlisted, you can specify your preferred team at this stage (whether you choose to be specific or flexible about the team will not negatively impact on your application).
