Do you have lived experience of mental ill health? Do you feel you are in a position to use this experience to support others who are just coming out of hospital?


We are looking for peer supporters from a range of backgrounds and experiences so please don’t think this is not you – you might be exactly the type of person we are looking for.  The team at York Mind will provide you with full training and ongoing support.


As a peer supporter, you would provide 1-1 support to individuals leaving Foss Park hospital. This support could be for a range of issues including housing, access to community activities, helping to tackle loneliness or just being a listening ear. Flexibility is key to the success in this role.


This is an exciting opportunity for people who have a genuine interest in using their own experience to support others, enjoy working on a casual basis and want to be part of a new way of working in York.   


Successful applicants are required to attend York Mind`s compulsory training and be subjected to a Disclosure and Barring Service Check (DBS). You will be expected to attend training during September 2021 OR January 2022 (exact dates and times to be confirmed).


To apply for this role, please complete the attached shortened application form. It is essential that you tell us about:

  • Your lived experience of mental ill health
  • Why you would be an effective peer supporter
  • Any experience you have of supporting others (personally or professionally)


As we are constantly looking for casual peer supporters and will be accepting applications on an ongoing basis.  Currently there is no closing date.


Your completed shortened application form should be emailed to
