The Matthew Project is a value driven charity working across Norfolk and Suffolk giving help and hope through programmes with adults, young people and communities affected by drugs and alcohol. We have a vision to reach every part of the community in the most creative, effective and efficient ways. Through our varied services, young people and adults receive professional advice, information, counselling, support, care and education.
We are looking for an experienced worker to provide support to adults affected by substance misuse. You will work with individuals, managing a caseload, and completing care plans within a multi-agency team; undertaking assessments and providing information, advice and needle exchange to substance users. You will hold a caseload of around 50 clients which will include complex and challenging people with multiple needs including mental health issues. Experience of working with this client group in a substance misuse setting is desired.
The office base for this post is King’s Lynn but will cover a wider geographical area across West Norfolk. The work will be carried out within the service location and in the community; the ability to travel is essential.
