The U-Turn Group Worker will support the Peer Education Harm Reduction Service for the Young People in South Lanarkshire. This is a new service to be delivered by GCA and funded by NHS Lanarkshire, on behalf of South Lanarkshire ADP.
The main focus of this service will be peer education with the added provision of one to one support and supervision for the YP Peer Educators themselves. The service will adopt a citizenship approach when working with the YP Peer Educators. There will be an expectation that the YP Peer Educators will work towards achieving qualifications through training and as a result of the work they undertake.
This service will target and focus on some of the most vulnerable young people (aged 12-18 years) living within South Lanarkshire.
The YP Peer Educators will be supported to deliver peer education inputs across South Lanarkshire to other Young People and Young People focussed groups incorporate a harm reduction approach as well as a separate element of addressing stigma/language around drug and alcohol use.
The U-Turn Group Worker will be employed by Glasgow Council on Alcohol (GCA).
