Do you have what it takes to make positive change? 


The main purpose of the role is to intensively support people to reduce problematic alcohol and substance misuse and tackle the wider complex issues associated with this client group, including rough sleeping and poor health, fewer alcohol related hospital admissions and a reduction in crime and disorder. 


Officers have a varied case load, allowing ​them to build trusting relationships with service users and support them on their journey to recovery, by addressing some of the underpinning issues. Support to individuals is intense throughout and engagement with partner agencies is vital to achieving the outcomes of the project. The group prefer to engage with non-statutory services and those who come to them in the form of an outreach service.
