Housing Support and Recovery Co-ordinator

About Us

At Turning Tides, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive support to individuals facing homelessness and substance misuse challenges. We believe in fostering a supportive environment where individuals can rebuild their lives with dignity and respect. As part of our commitment to this mission, we are seeking a dynamic and dedicated Housing Support and Recovery Coordinator to join our team.

Key Responsibilities

The role of Housing Support and Recovery Co-ordinator will involve providing personalised support through individually negotiated and agreed support plans for clients, who require stable secure accommodation to continue an abstinence-based individual recovery journey.

We aim to provide a psychologically informed service that uses a strengths-based approach.  This role will include both direct client support and housing management responsibilities, such as managing referrals and assessments, working within agreed budgets, collecting service charges, void management and health and safety/maintenance checks.

The post holder will support clients through a mix of both practical and psychosocial interventions including housing support; skills development; rebuilding relationships lost through addiction; personalised relapse prevention plans and finding a new passion and excitement in the absence of addiction. It is expected that this work will involve a multi-agency approach involving housing, probation, drug and treatment services, health and wellbeing services and mutual aid groups such as AA and NA.

The Recovery Housing Coordinator will work flexible hours, enabling them to be present at key times during the week in line with individual client needs and service requirements.

  • Proficient in working independently and collaboratively, taking initiative and responsibility.
