Change Grow Live PHE Outreach Non-Medical Prescriber - Fixed Term until 31st March 2020 in Southampton, United Kingdom

A fantastic, new opportunity has arisen to become an non-medical prescriber, delivering recovery orientated alcohol and drug intervention services with the rough sleeping team in Southampton. We are hoping this role will be for you.

Do you want to work for a caring organisation that believes in people?

Have you the energy and drive to help launch a new service?

As a part of Change Grow Live team you’ll help people get to where they want to be and make a difference in their lives.

As part of the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government funding package for 43 areas with the highest numbers of people who are rough sleeping, CGL services have been involved in developing funding proposals along with other stakeholders.

We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in securing funding and are now looking to recruit staff to join dedicated multi-disciplinary teams across the country to support people who are rough sleeping with harm reduction and to engagement in treatment and will sit within drug and alcohol treatment services.

Change, Grow, Live services and staff will provide wraparound support to people who are rough sleeping and will work directly with the emergency accommodation to support the staff with this group of people. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals and friendly faces to help support people in leading healthier lives.

You will focus on engaging with people who have a history of rough sleeping and substance misuse. You will have some experience of engaging with individuals with multiple and/or complex needs and demonstrate a determined approach to finding solutions. Some knowledge of one or more of the following is required:


Mental Health

Criminal Justice System

Substance Misuse

No two days are the same and we treat every person who comes into our service as an individual, so being flexible, curious and a good listener are key.

You will have to record information about what you do, so enjoying a bit of paperwork and attention to detail is important. But most of the time you will be enjoying working with people from all backgrounds, making a difference to their lives.

Change Grow Live offers opportunities for growth and development and all of our staff are encouraged to take a wellbeing hour every week plus our nurses benefit from half a day a month CPD, active support with revalidation and their NMC fees paid. We encourage a strong peer network and there is a facilitated monthly national nurse and healthcare assistant forum

Does this role sound perfect for you? if so, please take a look at our job description.
