The Boston Recovery Pathways Project is a Big Lottery funded initiative that aims to provide additional opportunities for local people to access support to move forward in their recovery from Drug and Alcohol problems. The project delivers mentoring qualifications to local communities, helps to establish a network of ‘peer’ support groups and provides Drug and Alcohol awareness training to local businesses.

The post holder will manage, supervise and support a small staff team who deliver both the Boston Recovery Pathways Project and the Boston element of Double Impact Recovery Services.
Our Boston services aim to reach communities who may not be in treatment / support services and connect them through our established partnerships to the help and support they need.
The post holder will therefore need to have good knowledge/experience of the recovery from addiction process and an understanding of how education, training and volunteering can benefit an individual’s recovery goals with a good understanding of the barriers and challenges people face.
