Are you determined to make a difference, looking for a new challenge, and enjoy working in a dynamic and fast paced environment?


ONSIDE is an independent charity promoting the rights and interests of people facing disadvantage. No matter who you are or where you’re from, ONSIDE believes that everyone is entitled to fair, equal treatment and opportunity. We are all about people; supporting and empowering them to make informed decisions and to live the very best life possible. It’s an ambitious goal, and the rewards can be lifechanging for those concerned.  Our skilled staff and volunteers make a real difference to the lives of over 8,500 people a year across Worcestershire and Herefordshire.


Our Community Mental Health Link Worker will be an exceptional individual who will work directly with patients across Worcestershire to support their needs relating to social factors, wellbeing and wider determinants of health and be instrumental in enabling patients to link up all elements of their treatment and support.

Who are we looking for?

More people need our help than ever before. Because of that, we are growing faster than ever before. The role of Community Mental Health Link Worker is a real career opportunity to contribute to breaking down barriers for patients moving between primary and secondary mental health services and aims to embed a more joined up approach to patient care.

We are looking for someone who has experience of working positively with individuals with mental ill health and with an understanding of the impact poor mental health can have on a person’s life and the complex social and emotional challenges they may face.

This role will involve working in different locations, and will require you to travel across Worcestershire, therefore the ability to drive and have access to a vehicle is essential.
