You will be someone who shares our belief in the inherent capacity and potential of all individuals and that empowering individuals to support each other leads to positive change; not only for themselves, but also for their communities.
We believe that everyone has the potential to grow and learn and achieve the best they can in everything they do. We know it takes courage and commitment to change, which is why we have a passion statement, rather than a mission statement. Being passionate means being:
- brave enough to say when something isn’t good enough
- humble enough to accept and learn from criticism
- willing to take responsibility for making things better
- creative and daring enough to innovate
- determined to persist when things get tough
Above all, being passionate means having the desire to nurture, facilitate and empower others to reach out with hope to their emerging horizons. We want to inspire you and those you work with to pursue their recovery goals with passion and vigour.
As a PSI Worker, you will be an integral part of a community based rehabilitation and harm reduction programme that supports individuals towards recovery, increased resilience and wellbeing with the goal of living successful and fulfilling lives free of active addiction. You will also support the implementation of a psychologically informed environment across the service under the umbrella of the Foundations of Recovery programme. The programme provides a positive, affirming environment where individuals can work together to generate hope and aspiration, develop their motivation and create opportunities to make profound, positive and enduring changes in their lives.
You will also work closely with partner organisations, team leaders, clinicians, social enterprises, education and training providers to develop integrated, recovery infrastructures that engage, support and navigate individuals from addiction and vulnerability to established recovery in the community with sustainable alternatives to drug/alcohol misuse and crime.
