  • During a visit to a service in Cornwall, I witnessed some fantastic support being provided. The team's person-centred focus was shown in the environment and the amazing way they interact with the people they support. Well done team, you are truly helping people to live their best lives.

Wellbeing and work-life balance

We aim to give as much flexibility in our rotas as possible, but our priority is to make sure the people we support have great staff available when they need.

As well as offering full-time, part-time, and casual contracts, some roles are also available on weekend-only contracts and nights-only contracts – perfect for people working around family responsibilities, or ‘out of term-time’ contracts – great for students looking for holiday jobs.

All staff have direct access to round-the-clock support from our dedicated counselling and legal helpline, and our GP and prescription service.

We offer employees wellbeing support through our own mental health first aiders, an employee support resilience coaching service, employee assistance line, and online wellbeing portal.

We provide discounted membership of the BHSF health cash plan, for staff and their families, this provides funding for medical expenses including dental/optical bills, and personal injury insurance.

If health issues affect you at work, we offer medical advice and support through our Occupational Health Service.
