Sarah Bieniasz - Porchlight/Live Well Kent

Hi, I'm Sarah, I work for Porchlight as a Mental Health & Wellbeing Coordinator on the Live Well Kent Service.  I started as a volunteer with Porchlight over 2 years ago, offering one day a week, I loved how Porchlight and it's staff really put the service user first and how welcoming and friendly volunteering was. After only a couple of weeks, I wanted to give more of my time to helping people and working with the most amazing staff, so I increased my hours and started to become a valuable member of staff within the charity. To my delight I was soon offered a full time position within the organization.   An opportunity came about where Porchlight wanted to bid for a new Mental Health Service, I got involved from the start doing research and preparation work.  We had to wait patiently for months to see if we had been successful. In January 2016 we received the great news that Porchlight along with Shaw Trust were choosen to be the two strategic partners for the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Service across Kent.  I worked on the mobilization and the up-coming launch of Live Well Kent on April 1st, 2016. This is how my role has been developed, I do a lot around event management and campaigns, coordinating training, working with delivery partners and developing our wider network & community assets as well as working closely with KCC for reporting and improving peoples outcomes.

I can honestly say I work in the most fantastic  environment, with both staff members and service users,  it's rewarding, sometimes challenging but over all I would not change it for the world

 If you would like to contact me in regards to our Resilience Conference or forthcoming events we will be doing this year, please e-mail sarahbieniasz@porchlight.org.uk
