Support Worker – CIP Project
After finishing University, I started working within the drug and alcohol field in 2012 as a temp, but from then I found a passion for working with people in the community and supporting them to get their life back on track.
Now, working at WAITS, I want to provide the same support I have learnt throughout my previous roles to support women to achieve their goals.
Anyone who strives to positively change their lives will always make a difference.
My role involves supporting women who have offended in the past, or who are at risk of offending/re-offending. I provide advocacy, guidance, advice and support with a range of issues, for example; housing, benefits, employment.
I also signpost women to appropriate agencies, and support them through this process. Examples of the types of agencies I refer to include drug and alcohol teams, family support services, legal services and mental health agencies.
