Abstinent Accommodation Link Worker

  • Salary £24,393
  • Location Strathmore Road, Newcastle
  • Status Full-Time
  • Deadline 1 November 2021

With funding from Public Health England and the Home Office, this is a great opportunity to be part of an exciting and innovative approach to supporting people in recovery, working within a wider delivery plan focused on reducing substance misuse in Newcastle.

Delivered through a partnership between Tyne Housing Association and Phoenix Futures, the role’s focus is to support existing and new specialist Newcastle-based accommodation services for people in recovery from drug or alcohol misuse to support their continued progression, through development of partnerships and appropriate referral pathways into it. The post will involve establishing understanding and data around demand for an abstinence-based accommodation programme and support creation of an evidence base around efficacy, as well as providing direct support to residents.

It’s a challenging role. We don’t expect that people need support Monday – Friday, 9-5, so there will be occasional evening and weekend working.

You will be out and about working to develop relationships with stakeholders in the community and directly with the people on your caseload. We can guarantee an interesting work environment, where no two days are the same.

We need experienced Support Workers who can work on their own initiative and aren’t afraid of taking a decision, but most of all we need people who can get on board with our values and want to help people get to a better place.
