Ormiston Families’ Supporting Smiles Children and Young People’s Mental Health Service is excited to invite applications from therapists, looking to further their therapeutic career.   We offer great benefits.

Our Supporting Smiles service provides professional mental health support to children and young people through our Therapeutic Pathway for 4–13 year olds and 5–18 year olds with our Children’s Wellbeing Practitioner team. Whether residing in Norfolk or Waveney or registered with a Norfolk or Waveney GP, we’re here to offer therapeutic support to meet children and young people’s needs.

At Supporting Smiles, we believe in a needs-led approach, and our service name, “Supporting Smiles,” was co-created with input from the children and families we support. Our holistic mental health and wellbeing support service encompasses the expertise of our therapeutic practitioners, counsellors, and children’s wellbeing practitioners, complemented by therapeutic support from our partners at The Benjamin Foundation. Together, we are committed to working alongside a network of support that extends beyond our walls and into the heart of the community.

Our therapeutic support brilliantly extends into a successful training offer across Norfolk and Waveney through our Link Team, who are committed to further developing a well-established group of mental health champions.

Convenience and accessibility are key to our therapeutic support. We offer sessions in various venues across your local community, including schools and family hub sites. If accessing our venues poses a challenge, don’t hesitate to reach out, and we’ll work together to find a solution that suits your needs.

As a member of Norfolk & Waveney’s Children and Young People’s Alliance, we’re part of an integrated mental health service network dedicated to THRIVE principles: Getting Advice, Getting Help, Getting More Help, and Risk Support. Alongside partners like The Benjamin Foundation, Norfolk & Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, Norfolk County Council, and Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, we’re committed to providing comprehensive support to children and young people aged 0-25, ensuring their mental health needs are met every step of the way.
