ANA LIFFEY DRUG PROJECT
Our vision is for a society where all people affected by problem substance use are treated with dignity and respect and have access to quality services.
Our mission is to work with people affected by problem substance use and the organisations that assist them. We do this to reduce harm to individuals and society, and to provide opportunities for development of those individuals and organisations.
Working as part of the Project Team and under the guidance of the Team Leader, the main focus of responsibility is the efficient and effective delivery of our services in the Midwest. Through access to a structured package of care, intervention and support, this service will provide direct service provision to adults who are actively using, or have previously used drugs. You will be responsible for providing effective delivery of direct services, primarily key working and case management, to the people who use our services; ensuring a warm and welcoming service is provided.
Whilst the organisation takes every step possible to ensure the safety of its staff, it is important to be clear that due to the nature of the work carried out at the Ana Liffey Drug Project, it is possible that you will experience aggression in the work place from the people who use our services and there is a risk that you may be verbally or physically assaulted. You will receive training in how to avoid and manage these situations; however in the unfortunate event of an assault taking place, the organisation will provide appropriate support to assist you to overcome this.
