We are looking for passionate and committed people for this role, which involves providing support to people calling Mind in Bradford’s Guide-Line telephone helpline service.
Guide-Line is for residents of Bradford, Craven, Airedale and Wharfedale and offers confidential mental health support, guidance and signposting. It is receiving an increasing number of calls and we currently deal with around 2,000 calls per month. There is already a dedicated team of staff and volunteers in place, who have experience and passion for delivering the best possible service. This is a 365-day-a-year helpline, which is currently open from 12 noon to 9pm but is set to expand until 12am.
Guide-Line was an 18+ service but we have opened this up to all ages from 1st March and we are in the process of adding a live chat facility so people in need of support have another way of receiving support other than just the traditional method of a phone call.
