Are you passionate about supporting families with the guidance and support they need to live within the community and thrive as a family? We are now recruit a Therapeutic Worker to join our new and innovative National Specialist Family Residential Service based in Saltcoats, North Ayrshire. The service provides a range of support for parents and their children in a residential setting for example drug and/or alcohol recovery support, parenting, personal development and health & well-being.

The Role

Your role in our therapeutic community will be key. You’ll manage a caseload, assess the people who use our service and manage their recovery/care plans.

As a Therapeutic Worker, you will support individuals accessing the residential rehabilitation programme to achieve outcomes that help create long-term recovery. Using the Therapeutic Community “community as method” model you will empower individuals, families and communities to be confident about recovery.

You will support the day to day running of the therapeutic community, ensuring service user needs are met and the best possible care is provided in an environment that promotes a culture of recovery. Whilst also being confident to deliver therapeutic groups, activities, and specialist interventions in accordance with the TC manual and the needs of the service.

Previous experience is desirable, however not essential. Therapeutic Workers come from many different backgrounds and experiences, and you may have the skills required. We are seeking dedicated individuals, based on your values, willingness to learn new skills and the compassion to deliver the best service possible to our residents.

This is a full-time role averaging 37.5 hours per week. You will be expected to work a rolling rota which includes evening and weekend working.
