Service: Greater Glasgow & Clyde Overdose Response Team

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 the Greater Glasgow & Clyde Overdose Response Team 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.

This test of change is to be delivered across five local authority areas across the west of Scotland on an assertive outreach basis. We address other potential barriers including information and data sharing; prescribing arrangements, and rapid access to mainstream alcohol and other drug services.

We will aim to increase engagement with alcohol and other drug services and provide a template which the Drug Deaths Task Force could roll out to other areas

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.
