Do you want to join an organisation who are passionate about improving mental health and wellbeing for Lancashire communities? 

We’re looking for a bold and caring person to join our Children and Young People’s team. We want someone who has experience of engaging and working with young people in community settings, ideally in Lancashire.

You will have experience working with the community and voluntary sector and understand the barriers some young people face to achieving good mental health and wellbeing.

This is an exciting time for Lancashire Mind as our children and young people’s services are growing, enabling us to reach and support more people. We want someone who believes in our vision of a Lancashire where everyone can have the best mental health and wellbeing possible.

We also offer a workplace pension scheme, paid emergency time off to care for dependents, regular supervision, and a commitment to supporting learning and development opportunities. We have also recently enhanced our annual leave offer with basic annual leave of 25 days, plus 3 days closure between Christmas and new year, long service leave, the option to buy or sell annual leave and a half-day wellbeing day for all staff.
