You will also have a lead role in developing the service, through collaboration with the people who use the service, your colleagues across the Outreach Team and colleagues in stakeholder organisations. Working alongside our Dumfries and Galloway team, the role offers you an opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of people affected by mental health issues.
