    Description

    The Forward Trust, are a UK leading provider of drug and alcohol treatment services to offenders. We deliver treatment and recovery support – in prisons and in the community – which helps people move away from addiction and crime.

    Working within an integrated healthcare framework to provide support to drug and alcohol users aged 18 and over. As part of the dedicated Floating Support provision, you will support the resettlement of individuals in another district and co-ordinate care with the new drug and alcohol service centre. This service will be a time limited transition support up until the individual is fully settled in their new area and within the local drug and alcohol service.

    You will carry a smaller caseload to offer an enhanced level of support and flexibility for those with high complexity and experience to barriers to engagement. This will be underpinned by Trauma Informed approaches. The Dedicated skilled workers will have an understanding of the unique needs of those at risk of rough sleeping and co-ordinate care, e.g. liaison with housing support workers and facilitating access to primary care services.

    You will be responsible for contributing to the targets set by Forward and the local commissioners. One of the key targets will be measuring outcomes, so co-operative working relationships with other partner agencies is vital to this role.
