    Everyone's Turning Point is unique. It's the moment when they realise they've made a small, but important, step forward. Very often, that small step is the start of something bigger. But only when the right support, advice and services are in place.

    At Turning Point, we support people across the UK with substance misuse. As a Support Worker at Northumberland Recovery Partnership you'll make a real difference to our service users' lives as you deliver our psychosocial intervention group work programmes to help them turn things around. Passionate about people, you'll enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life too, as you make the role your own as part of a friendly and multidisciplinary team.


    Raising the bar for people-centred care, you'll provide advice, information and education to our service users. Your role will crucially involve delivering our evidence based group work programmes across Northumberland to assist our recovery coordinators provide a seamless recovery journey for our service users. People's lives will be truly changed by you, as you must be able to build rapport quickly with clients and be able to motivate clients to make appropriate decisions, working in a person centred way.

    We'll offer the chance to thrive on a wide range of challenges as you build relationships throughout every stage of their recovery. From recognising indicators of substance misuse, providing harm reduction advice and psychosocial interventions, to working closely with healthcare professionals such as GPs and social services, your dedication will make a better future possible. Transferable skills from other sectors are welcomed if you can demonstrate the ability to facilitate group work.
