Regenfx Youth Trust have established the first ever visible Youth Recovery Service in South Lanarkshire. We work with 13 – 25yr olds who are affected by problematic alcohol & substance use. The service is known as The GIVIT.

We use a blend of Youth Work, rapid access to CBT Counsellors backed up with a fully supported Recovery Model to help young people consider their own personal recovery needs.

Due to the exceptionally high demand for the service and The GIVIT exceeding their targets in the first year by 92%, we are expanding our skilled staff team to include an Family Navigator specifically to support the families of the young people referred to The GIVIT.

The Family Navigator will provide 1 to 1 support and possible groupwork for families. You will be given full training and excellent support from your colleagues including the opportunity to shadow in the first instance. You must be able to build solid relationships with young people based on trust, mutual respect, care and compassion. You will need to be a natural motivator who can work with a small caseload effectively.

This is a 7-day a week service that includes some evening & weekends. All work is done in person we have no working from home arrangements.

We are particularly interested in people with experience in Family Work and or the Recovery Field, but most importantly, people who are driven, genuinely interested in young people and who would welcome a challenge like no other supported by a very skilled staff team.

You will have experience of supporting families and increasing their uptake of support services to improve making connections to external support. A good knowledge of problematic alcohol and drug use and or experience in the Recovery Field is desirable.

It is important to us that we find the right people for the new posts. We know we might not find someone with everything we are looking for, but if you think it could be you and are hesitant on whether to apply or not please give us a call to discuss the post further.

Regen:fx Youth Trust is a registered charity established in 2007. We develop & deliver Youth Diversion Programmes and Specialised Projects throughout South Lanarkshire for 8 – 25yr olds. Checkout our website
