Based at Resilience, in Windsor & Maidenhead
Cranstoun has been making life better for those affected by alcohol and drugs since 1969. Our skilled and compassionate people work closely with service users and their families to change and save lives. We combine proven expertise in treatment and recovery with innovative approaches and actively involve those we help in improving the design of the services we provide.
The aim of this role is to increase the number of potential service user’s from the community that do not currently engage with treatment services, by working closely with the individual and in partnership with RBWM services to provide holistic treatment and remove barriers into treatment for our hard to reach communities. This may include rough sleepers, dual diagnosis clients and individuals who may have adopted a street lifestyle, from rough sleeping, sex working, beggars and street drinkers.
The successful candidate will also identify and support entrenched individuals who may be unwilling to engage in services, and provide effective harm reduction advice and information. Thi8s will include identifying and engaging with individuals with unmet drug or alcohol problems in the community, providing assertive outreach with a view of removing any barriers they may find for accessing treatment, and take treatment and interventions out to our hard to reach communities.
Further to this, the role will involve taking responsibility of developing and maintaining strong links with key stakeholders, and liaising with statutory and voluntary organisations.
The successful candidate will complete assessments, manage a caseload, provide advice, treatment and interventions and will be required to care coordinate the service user’s recovery by assessing, reviewing and monitoring their treatment journey.
A strong eye for detail in both the inputting and collation of data is essential, as well as clear evidence of your drive to support individuals to achieve their potential.
