LGBT Foundation is part of the Positive about Disabled People Scheme and is an Investors in People accredited organisation. We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, faith and religion, disability and age, but, as ethnic minority groups, members of the trans community and religious and faith groups are currently under-represented across the organisation, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

Wellbeing Assistant

LGBT Foundation are looking to recruit a full time Wellbeing Assistant

LGBT Foundation bases its services on a well-developed expertise around a range of health and wellbeing topics, including mental health, wellbeing and sexual health. These issues often interact with each other, and we shape our services to be person centred and provide wraparound support to the individual. Alongside this, we recognise the importance of being able to provide specialist provision and have therefore developed a model where all clients access LGBT Foundation via an integrated triage system, before being directed into the most suitable service.

Wellbeing Assistants play an integral role in this model, often acting as the first point of contact for many individuals coming to LGBT Foundation via one of our access points including the Helpline. Wellbeing Assistants will be responsible for triaging contacts; working with the wider LGBT Foundation staff team and a range of external partners, to ensure referral and signposting pathways work seamlessly. They will also support the wider Services Team with the collection of timely activity data and administration tasks.

Wellbeing Assistants will also support the delivery of a range of other services; developing key skills and basic knowledge across a range of health and wellbeing topics. Included in this, supporting a group of volunteers to deliver Foundation Direct services including helpline, pop in and email support.

We particularly welcome applicants who identify as women from BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) communities, trans communities and that are older (50+) as staff from these are currently underrepresented in our organisation.

* Trans is an umbrella and inclusive term used to describe people whose gender identity differs in some way from that which they were assigned at birth; including non-binary people, cross dressers and those who partially or incompletely identify with their sex assigned at birth.

We are open to flexible home working if you are in the process of transition and therefore have regular appointments.
