Early Implementer -Community Wellbeing Connector

The Community Connectors will support people to achieve better mental health and wellbeing, increasing independence and supporting recovery.   

They will work as part of a Multi-Disciplinary team with a case load of clients across the Local Care Partnership area, and use a personalised approach to support people, using coaching and motivational interviewing. Through this they will help clients identify support and services in the local community, that support their recovery, and motivate and enable them to engage with these services.   

Community Connectors will be experienced in working with, and building relationships with, people with a variety of mental health needs. They will be adept at managing risks and safeguarding concerns.  

(Please note the name of the role is a working title based on the national guidance – the final title of the role will be co-produced.) 

What is the Community Mental Health Transformation Programme?  

The Community Mental Health Transformation programme is a new way of supporting adults and older adults with ongoing and complex mental health needs. This new approach will allow more people to get the support they need when they need it. It will provide mental health support at a local level, and there will also be help and advice for other issues such as housing, benefits, employment, and physical health; all in the same place.  

 The programme focuses on supporting individuals who have ongoing and complex mental health needs, sometimes referred to as people with Severe Mental Illness (SMI). In this context, this covers a range of needs and diagnoses, including but not limited to, people with; bipolar disorder, ‘personality disorder’ diagnosis, eating disorders, severe depression and mental health rehabilitation needs – some of which may co-exist with frailty, cognitive impairments, neurodiversity, or substance use.

Lived Experience Practitioner – Trauma Informed Group Support 

Northpoint Wellbeing Service has been commissioned to run an innovative Therapeutic Community (Trauma Informed Group Support) pilot, as part of integrated primary care provision, for 18 months initially. 

We envisage that this pilot will meet the needs of young people, who have experienced trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s), in a flexible and responsive way that is different to the current provision available. It increases the availability of trauma informed therapeutic provision within the city and will be delivered at accessible venues. 

Leeds has a high student population with many young people living away from their home networks and support for the first time. This cohort presents some particular challenges to professionals currently working within primary care; in particular the need to contain and support young people experiencing distress who have experienced a number of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and past trauma. 

The postholder will uphold the principles and structure of the pilot, the primary aim being to enable service users to effectively engage in both the preparatory and group phases. You will help group members work on interpersonal relationships, destructive behaviours and improve engagement with local services. The postholder will be open to developing the role in the context of service development and improvement.
