BSW Community Services Mental Health Framework (CSMHF)
The Third Sector Alliance (a partnership between Bath Mind, Swindon & Gloucestershire Mind, Rethink and Alabare) have been busy developing our approach to Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW)’s Community Services Mental Health Framework (CSMHF) as signed partners.
Collaboration and partnership working are central to our role and following an initial meeting with Third Sector infrastructure partners, our first formal Third Sector Alliance Partnership Group meeting will take place on Wednesday 6th October. The Partnership will be the formal mechanism through which the Alliance represents the breadth of the Third Sector and will be formed of the Alliance, Bath & North East Somerset Third Sector Group (3SG), Voluntary Action Swindon, and Wessex Community Action.
The first phase of Third Sector recruitment is underway, and we hope to have post filled by mid to late-November with all first phase recruitment concluded by end of Q3. We are adopting a phased approach to recruitment and service model development in order to test new approaches and incorporate structured learning into our second phase recruitment which will commence in late Q4 through into early ’22/23. A key aspect of our recruitment is flexibility and attracting dynamic individuals to help shape the service model, and ways of working, to achieve maximum impact. The second phase of recruitment will also expand to cover additional roles such as Counsellors, Wellbeing Support Coordinators and Administrators.
