Do you have a passion for helping vulnerable people enjoy as much fulfilment as they can and feel included in their community? If compassion, care and inclusiveness are an important part of who you are, our opportunities to work away from the routine in a demanding, challenging but emotionally rewarding role could be for you.
Our Turning Point Scotland Services in Turnaround Residential Service are looking for people like you to help provide individualised support to adults with a wide range of needs, either on an individual 1:1 basis or alongside others and as part of a team.
The Turning Point Scotland Turnaround service delivers focused services that address the complex and interrelated issues of offending behaviour and problematic use of alcohol and other drugs. In 2018, we redesigned our service to also include a Throughcare model.

An asset-based approach has been adopted to help increase an individual’s self-awareness, self-esteem and confidence. Self-development and reflection are key to an individual when putting into practice the skills and learning achieved within the service to help sustain their recovery and offending behaviour.
The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.
No previous working experience is needed; full training will be provided to you. We believe having the right values of respect, compassion, inclusion and integrity is all you need to join our team! We would offer you full support in completing your application.
As a Support Practitioner, you will work with individuals who have a wide range of support needs, providing them with practical and emotional support and encouraging them to achieve their own personal outcomes in all aspects of their daily lives e.g. keeping safe, meaningful activities, community involvement, physical health, relationships, emotional health and wellbeing.
