Coastal West Sussex Mind is a local mental health charity committed to promoting mental well-being in local communities and supporting the recovery and independence of individuals we provide support to. We are looking to recruit to our Worthing Service. 

The role will split between our Pathfinder (adult), and our Be OK (young persons, 16-25) services. 

Successful applicants will develop and provide recovery focused 1:1 and group support and learning opportunities within our Worthing team, as well as outreaching into young people’s settings in the Adur area.
