Lothlorien Therapeutic Community
Hours: 3 days per week and be available for holiday cover as needed
Salary: £12 per hour
Type of Contract: sessional

Lothlorien Community is looking for a sessional support worker to join us at our quiet rural setting in South West Scotland.

We are a therapeutic community providing the opportunity for people facing mental health challenges to develop their potential through living alongside others who are relatively well, in an atmosphere of friendship, acceptance and mutual support.

Lothlorien has been run since 1989 by the Rokpa Trust, an international charity founded by Dr. Akong Rinpoche of Samye Ling Tibetan Centre in Dumfriesshire. Buddhist values of compassion and tolerance are the basis of our approach, but we are not a religious community and are open to everyone.

We’re now looking for a sessional support worker to get involved in all aspects of community life, including therapeutic gardening, art, qigong and relaxation.

Our ideal candidate will have a compassionate and trauma informed approach to mental health support, a keen interest in therapeutic gardening as well as having the skills to help out with administrative tasks.

It’s a sessional job and salary will be £12 per hour. We’d like someone to be able to do around 3 days per week and be available for holiday cover as needed.

How to Apply:

If this sounds like you and you’re looking for a job where you can share your passion for great mental health support and therapeutic gardening, please get in touch with We’d love to hear from you.
