We are The Forward Trust, the social enterprise that empowers people to break the cycle of crime and addiction to move forward with their lives.
The role will be based on site working seamlessly with substance misuse teams delivering services directly to service users aged 18 and over residing across Surrey Prisons.
The substance misuse services take a recovery-orientated and trauma informed approach to deliver holistic health and wellbeing interventions and various treatment programmes for those coming into the prison who identify as having issues with drugs and/or alcohol.
You will therefore be expected to work with those presenting with low-level mental health needs and/or issues relating to substance misuse and dependency.
The Peer Coordinator role is one that aspires to champion the 'lived experience' and work with those who will be engaged in the service as service users but with aspirations to take on a role in promoting and assisting in delivery of services on site across our Surrey Prisons (HMP Highdown, HMP Downview, HMP Bronzefield, HMP Coldingley & HMP Send).
This is an exciting time to join the services as we implement a new contract model and continue to develop projects and initiatives across the region.
Please note this role will be based working across the region of Surrey, therefore travel will be required between sites.
