Role

Support Practitioner (x1 NE Recovery Hub, x2 Central Prescribing Team, x1 The Access Place)

Could you help us save lives?

Do you have a passion for helping vulnerable people enjoy as much fulfilment as they can and feel included in their community? If compassion, care and inclusiveness are an important part of who you are, our opportunities to work away from the routine in a demanding, challenging but emotionally rewarding role could be for you.

Our Turning Point Scotland Services in Edinburgh are looking for people like you to help provide individualised support to adults with a wide range of needs, either on an individual 1:1 basis or alongside others and as part of a team.

North East Edinburgh Recovery Hub

The North East Recovery Hub is a one-stop shop which offers a full range of drug and alcohol treatment and support services. We are a multi - disciplinary team comprising of Voluntary Sector, TPS, NHS and social work staff.

We are based within our main office in Leith, the Access Place in the Old Town, a satellite location in Craigmillar, and will shortly be opening up a site in Spittal Street - the Central Prescribing Team. You may be asked to work across multiple sites.

We understand that everybody’s experience is different. When people come to the Hub, we personalise their care to achieve their goals.

The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.

No previous working experience is needed; full training will be provided to you. We believe having the right values of respect, compassion, inclusion and integrity is all you need to join our team! We would offer you full support in completing your application.

As a Support Practitioner, you will work with individuals who have a wide range of support needs, providing them with practical and emotional support and encouraging them to achieve their own personal outcomes in all aspects of their daily lives e.g. keeping safe, meaningful activities, community involvement, physical health, relationships, emotional health and wellbeing.
