The County Manager will help to improve the lives of people with serious mental illness by managing Hafal’s Day Service across the county of Cardiff in line with our commitment to principles of empowerment, self-management and recovery and ensuring compliance with internal and external quality standards inspection.

About Us:

What’s our mission?

Hafal is founded on the belief that people who have direct experience of mental illness know best how services can be delivered. County Manager

Providing support across the seven local health board areas of Wales, Hafal is dedicated to empowering people with serious mental illness and their families to:

  • achieve a better quality of life
  • fulfil their ambitions for recovery
  • fight discrimination
  • enjoy equal access to health and social care, housing, income, education, and employment.

What do we do?

Hafal delivers a range of services to people with serious mental health illness including direct support and advice, support in a crisis, contact with others by phone, advocacy, support in a group setting, introductions for befriending, and employment and training projects.  We also give clients a much-needed voice in the planning of mental health services.

Underpinning our services to clients, families and members is our own Recovery Programme.  This Programme is based on modern principles of self-management and empowerment.  It encourages clients and families to work towards recovery with the help of Hafal’s staff and other supporters by taking a more methodical approach to improving all areas of life.

As well as providing services Hafal campaigns vigorously through research, publications and media work to improve services for clients and families and to remove stigma and isolation associated with serious mental illness.  Hafal is also represented on the Welsh Assembly Government’s Implementation Group which advises on implementation of the Mental Health Strategy for Wales.
