Recovery Worker - Earls Court
Turning Point supports people with mental health issues across United Kingdom. As a Recovery Worker, you'll make a real difference to their lives as you introduce them to the personal, flexible and realistic support they need to improve the quality of their lives in their communities.
At our services we provide support to adults with mental health problems and complex needs, including people affected by drug and alcohol misuse.
We offer high quality support, to help people take control, improve the quality of their lives and face the future with confidence.
As a recovery support worker, there’s no such a thing as a typical day – every day is interesting and varied. Being a good communicator is essential to be able to get on with people of all ages and from all backgrounds and you will also be liaising with other professionals.
No matter how complex a person's needs, whether they've tried support services or not in the past, we can provide person-centered support that helps individuals decrease isolation, increase independence, learn new skills, integrate into the community and make the most of every new opportunity.
You must be willing to actively embrace all aspects of the Recovery Support Worker role including, but not limited to, support with personal care and domestic tasks, as well as supporting individuals to access local resources, educational and social opportunities.
