We want to help our most vulnerable residents to get their lives firmly on track. It's why our Team Leaders have the time to get to know everyone they work with.

  •  To manage a caseload of clients with differing needs and support them to recover from their addictions
  •  We offer an extensive training programme for all members of staff which is designed so that members of staff are knowledgeable on substance misuse.

 The benefits you will experience are:
