    Are you a recovery practitioner looking for a new challenge in developing pathways and processes for service users within Greenwich?

    Launched in 2020, WDP Greenwich is a fully-integrated substance misuse service, providing clinical and psychosocial interventions, operating from a main treatment hub in Woolwich. The team actively promotes recovery and works with individuals that are directly and indirectly affected by substance misuse, working with the local community to improve the health, wellbeing and functioning of Greenwich residents, irrespective of circumstance.

    WDP Greenwich Navigation team will aim to improve service integration across LB Greenwich.  The navigation team will engage and connect with partners across the borough to create sustainable pathways. They will ensure wrap around support for complex service users including those in the Criminal Justice system.

    The Navigators will lead on one specific area within this new initiative funded by PHE. We are looking to recruit 5 Navigators who will work with partner agencies to establish and develop pathways.

    You will also hold a caseload of service users.  We are looking for people who have experience in working in one of the following areas:-

    children’s services; local prisons, court and probation; community safety and housing; primary care.

    We are seeking committed, organised and highly-motivated candidates, with an in-depth knowledge and experience of the challenges affecting people with substance misuse and related health and wellbeing issues in the London Borough of Greenwich.
