RECONNECT aims to address the health inequalities experienced by those released from prison.
The service starts working with people before they leave prison, where they will have access to a RECONNECT worker, who helps them to make the transition to community-based services that will provide the health and care support that they need.
In line with Forward Trust Equality, Diversity and Inclusion framework, this NHS commissioned RECONNECT service takes pride in recruiting those with lived experience be that of physical or mental ill health, substance misuse or the criminal justice system. The successful candidate will enrol onto a 12-18 month Adult Care Worker Level 2 apprenticeship.
Adult Care Workers are the frontline staff who help adults with care and support needs to achieve their personal goals and live as independently and safely as possible, enabling them to have control and choice in their lives.
You will support your colleagues providing a comprehensive, inclusive and bespoke RECONNECT service, including advice and guidance to Forward Trust clients across the following prisons: HMP Highpoint, Warren Hill and Hollesley Bay who need further support upon release.
