TCA are recruiting now for a Recovery Mentor! As a Recovery Mentor you will be supporting women whose children have been removed from their care.  TCA would particularly welcome candidates with lived experience (this can be personal experience, or experience gained through a close relative, friend or as a carer).

The mentor will provide tailored, trauma informed 1:1 input for birth mothers who do not have their children in their care, to support personal development and create pathways to engaging with relevant support services as well as meaningful social and community-based activities. The worker will meet with the women they are working with on an outreach basis weekly with flexibility for additional weekly contact should there be a requirement to provide this.

Please note that the post has a genuine occupational requirement for the post holder to be female due to the client group. This is in line with Equality Act 2010 guidelines.
