Vacancy: Health and Wellbeing Officer (Game Changer)

14 March 2024

'Game Changer’ is a new, early intervention project focused on empowering young people aged eleven to fourteen who are facing challenges with their mental and emotional wellbeing to develop skills, confidence, and resilience to thrive and live their best lives across a three-year period.

‘Game Changer’ will offer accessible community-based provision that complements Child Adolescent Mental Health Services [CAMHS] at a time when more young people are reaching out for support with their mental wellbeing than ever before in Preston and surrounding communities.

At Preston North End Community and Education Trust (PNECET), you will be working across the Lancashire and South Cumbria footprint to develop an innovative programme that will support high school students.

You will work with high schools within the city of Preston and will help to revolutionise the way we think, talk and act about mental health, providing an early intervention and prevention service for children, schools and families. The aim of this programme is to increase resilience and give pupils the necessary tools to thrive both within all aspects of their lives.

The Health and Wellbeing Officer will work with the schools using a flexible approach to provide group interventions at the earliest opportunity; providing education on coping strategies and self-management whilst also identifying those requiring one-to-one support, predominately pupils who are currently accessing Mental Health support services, or are at higher risk of requiring support.
