Do you have a passion for preventative work? Do you get excited by innovation and new opportunities? We are looking for three people with exceptional communication skills, a passion for rehabilitation and prevention and strong belief in partnership approaches. This is a new initiative, the Custody Link Worker Project, with three year funding, to deliver a ’links’ based intervention through custody. Adapting the model and concept from the GP based approach, this is a pilot partnership with Police Scotland, the Highland Community Justice Partnership and the Highland Third Sector Interface. The post will provide a person-centred service that is responsive to individual aspirations and needs of people coming through the custody suite and who want to engage with the project as a method of reducing their chances of returning to custody in the future. They will help the individual to identify issues which have or could lead them to offend, their live aspirations and hopes and agree a plan of action to work on achieving those aspirations and reducing the chances of offending in future.
