    Description

    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 Women’s Practitioner will lead on one specific area within this new initiative funded by PHE, specifically engaging with women who are vulnerable who have substance misuse issues. These will include those subject to and at risk from domestic abuse, rough sleeping or at risk of homelessness, women engaged in sex working and women from underrepresented groups who have been treatment resistant.

    We are looking to recruit a Women’s Practitioner, to join the team, who will work with partner agencies to establish and develop pathways.  You will also hold a caseload of service users.
