The Mental Health Link Service is Porchlight’s gateway to Live Well Kent & Medway, which provides support to people whose mental health is affected by social issues such as low income, housing risk and social isolation.

We work with people aged 17+ living with mental health issues, and others who are socially excluded and struggling to cope, needing our support to keep them on track. Experienced and knowledgeable staff develop plans with individuals, supporting them to achieve their goals and accessing the support they need, when they need it, working with and using local services.

  • Excellent communication and people skills.
  • Ability to initiate and maintain constructive relations with service users.

  • Good literacy, numeracy, and IT skills.

Contract: 6 month temporary contract.


Porchlight is a charity supporting people who are homeless, vulnerable, and isolated. At Porchlight, we are passionate about helping vulnerable people to reach their full potential. We strive for a fairer society where vulnerable people find stability, the most excluded are included, and where homelessness and poverty are things of the past.
