An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Lincolnshire Recovery Partnership, a vibrant new partnership delivering substance use treatment and recovery services across Lincolnshire from April 2024. Lincolnshire Recovery Partnership is delivered in partnership between Turning Point, Framework and Double Impact. The partnership combines Turning Point’s national experience as an outstanding substance use provider together with Double Impact’s specialism in lived experience and recovery and Framework’s expertise supporting service users with complex issues. Horizon is the Young Persons service within the Lincolnshire Recovery Partnership, supporting those up to the age of 18 years old.

Our ‘Recovery First’ model underpins everything at Lincolnshire Recovery Partnership, with lived experience recovery fully integrated and visible throughout. Lincolnshire’s residents will benefit from Lincolnshire Recovery Partnership’s highly integrated and highly localised approach, supporting with multiple issues across all parts of Lincolnshire.

As a Young Persons Recovery Worker/Schools Worker we offer a starting salary of £24,150 rising each year in line with our pay progression salary bands, rising to £28,252 per year (Pro-Rata). (Dependent on experience you may be offered a starting salary above the initial starting salary).

You will have opportunities to progress your career with a structured learning journey and clearly defined career pathways that will enable you to achieve your long-term goals and work to your strengths.

Whether you are looking to progress into a management and leadership role or to be a specialist in your field, at Turning point we will support and encourage you on your career journey.

Role Responsibility

Our Young Persons Schools Worker will be working in partnership with Safer Lincolnshire Partnership, specifically the Stay Safe Partnership. The Stay Safe Partnership brings together organisations and voluntary agencies to deliver age-appropriate workshops.

Within this role you will be delivering ‘Stay Safe Days’;  interactive workshops around drugs and alcohol to Key Stage 2- 5 students along with delivering drug and alcohol awareness sessions to professionals, families and other stakeholders. You will provide young people with information and advice around substances, providing factual and up-to-date harm reduction information to enable young people to have a better understanding of the risks, how to stay safe, and make the right choices for them.

No day is the same in this role, but an ability to communicate effectively and an ability to manage different tasks and a commitment to Turning Point values are essential. You may have lived experience of substance use/mental health/homelessness (self or a significant other), come with experience supporting people in health and social care or just have a keen interest in supporting this group; if your values are right, we have a role for everyone.

The Ideal Candidate

You’ll have an understanding of drug and alcohol use, experience of delivering and designing workshops, excellent collaborative and multi-agency working, along with the ability to work as part of a team. However, we also recognise that many people have transferrable skills from other backgrounds such as mental health, housing or other health and social care provision.  We look for candidates with excellent communication skills and who share our values as an organisation. We value individuals with lived experience but also those who are just interested in this line of work.

We value individual creativity and initiative and, whatever your role, you will be fully involved in identifying opportunities to improve the quality of our services and the service user experience. Your ideas will be listened to and your suggestions implemented wherever possible. You will be supported in your role by extensive training to help develop your skills. Our learning culture encourages everyone to stay on top of the latest developments in their field and helps drive service improvement.
