An exciting opportunity for practitioners with experience of working with children, young people and families to join a recently established team, which is part of local plans to transform services that support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of all children and young people in Suffolk. The Emotional Wellbeing Hub provides a therapeutic response to children, young people, families and professionals over the phone or by other digital means, ensuring that all enquiries receive an appropriate offer of support, advice or guidance, with the aim of simplifying access to help. We also have opportunities to join the Hub’s Urgent Response Team, which offers face-to-face support to children, families and young people in crisis. Please indicate your preference at interview.

If this is an area you are passionate about, we look forward to hearing from you.

Stakeholders, including young people and parents and carers who use our services, have set the following ambition for our workforce: “Ensure that you are kind and compassionate towards all children, young people and families, emphasising the need to give extra care and support for those presenting with mental health conditions and recognising that this group have their own care and support needs which differ from adult service users and their carers. Keep the needs of children, young people and families at the centre of your work, ensuring – where possible – that their voices are heard, all work is co-produced, and there is transparency and honesty instilled in all decisions made.”

We are looking for individuals who possess a combination of professional skills in therapeutic engagement, evidence-based practice, clinical assessment and formulation, as well as a good working knowledge of child and family services.
