    Company Name: My Life My Choice

    Nature of the Company: My Life My Choice (MLMC) is a multi-award winning self-advocacy charity run by and for people with learning disabilities, founded in 1998. The charity delivers a diverse range of innovative user led projects that enhances and empowers the lives of adults with learning disabilities in Oxfordshire. In 2017 MLMC received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service; described as the MBE for volunteer groups, it is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities.

    Responsibilities: My Life My Choice (MLMC) runs 10 monthly self-advocacy groups throughout Oxfordshire for 130 regular attendees who have a learning disability.

    The groups provide an opportunity for people to meet up and be part of their community as well as learning valuable new skills.

    The Group Session Worker facilitates these monthly group meetings alongside a paid co-facilitator who has a learning disability. Together they will work with group members in supporting them to speak up for themselves, to talk about their interests and to learn new skills.

MENCAP’s 2012 report “Stuck at Home” identified that 1 in 4 people with learning disabilities spend less than one hour outside their home each day. The “Loneliness and Cruelty” report (Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities, 2012) showed 93% of those interviewed saying that they felt vulnerable and isolated. The group activities help MLMC to address these issues.

    The Henley group currently meets at the Christ Church United Reformed Church, 46 Reading Road, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 1AG. The group meetings usually take place on the third Monday of each month from 7pm - 9pm.

    Benefits: Support people with learning disabilities to have a strong voice.

    Experience: • Commitment to the practice of empowering and working with people with learning disabilities to have choice & control their lives.

    • Experience of facilitating groups of people.

    • Proactive problem solver willing to work remotely and without supervision

    • Willingness to learn and to be adaptable to change.

    • Good IT Skills including PowerPoint, Excel, Word, email.

    • Access to own laptop which will be needed to carry out role.

    • Methodical and well organised, with the ability to prioritise.

    Closing Date: 12 Mar 2018

    More Details

    Company Name: Response Organisation

    Nature of the Company: Response has been successfully providing housing and support in the community for adults with mental health needs for over 50 years

    Responsibilities: For over 50 years, RESPONSE has been pioneering services that enable people with mental health problems and complex needs to live their lives to the full. Driven by our values and an incredible staff team, we’ve grown significantly in the last five years and now support in excess of 400 people across the Thames Valley on their journey to recovery and wellbeing.

    With a substantial housing portfolio, nearly 200 staff, robust NHS contracts and turnover nearing £10m we’re now well-placed to deliver future growth and even more vital life-changing services. We have an exceptional reputation, a thriving organisation, powerful partnerships and the ambition to do more.

    It’s now, at this incredibly exciting point in the life of RESPONSE, that we are seeking a new Chair of Trustees to help shape, drive and oversee the next phase of growth and innovation. Response aims to diversify their portfolio and open brand new services in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire alongside still developing new services in Oxfordshire either alone or in partnership with other organisations.

    In the next four years the Board will be involved in decisions about the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership, and the direction of its future developments in services local to Oxfordshire and across the Thames Valley; which is vital work when the need for good mental health services is increasingly evident.

    With a passion for mental health services and enhancing the lives of vulnerable people, the new Chair will work closely with our CEO and Board to maximise and broaden the impact on lives that RESPONSE can create.

    The new Chair will lead the board, contribute to, and ensure the effective delivery of the emerging strategy, in a way that compliments the different elements of the organisation. Strong understanding of compliance, risk management and control of processes are essential, as well as demonstrating a genuine interest and commitment to the organisation's Mission, Values and Strategic Goals. The Chair is the direct line manager of the CEO.

    As a large charity with energy and ambition, we need a Chair who is able to invest a suitable amount of time, on a flexible basis, each month. As a guide to the kind of time commitment required, the Chair could be investing around 16 hours a month to RESPONSE (in addition to the formal board meetings, which take place bi-monthly).

    We believe that our new Chair will have a proven and impressive track record in strategic leadership, be an effective communicator, have the ability to network and build strong relationships and, most importantly, be an advocate for the vulnerable and those living with mental ill health.

    Now, more than ever, our society needs to be providing for those who face mental health problems and associated disadvantages. At RESPONSE, we are driven to be at the forefront of that provision, constantly improving, innovating and supporting as many people as possible.

Because we’re a not for profit trust, we invest every penny we make in the people who live in our homes and the people who work here too. This means better quality care and lovely homes for our residents, along with competitive wages and great training and development for our people.

    We provide outstanding care, working closely with leading experts on dementia and elderly care. And we’re currently modernising our portfolio of care homes – refurbishing our existing homes and moving into new, inspiring, contemporary care homes too.

    We offer full and part-time positions on both a permanent and bank (zero hour) basis. Typically our Carers work 7am-2pm / 2pm-10pm on day shifts and 10pm-7am on night shifts (these times may vary a little from home to home).

As soon as you join us, you'll complete the Care Certificate and then work alongside an existing member of staff while you get to know your job. From there, we offer nationally recognised training such as QCFs in Health & Social Care (NVQs) as well as in-house training.

    Benefits: A great advantage of being a large organisation is that we can offer competitive pay and generous benefits to reward you for taking such good care of our residents. Here’s an overview of the main benefits you get while working at OSJCT:

    -Excellent career development and leadership opportunities

    -Pension scheme
    -Comprehensive induction (including the Care Certificate)
