DHI Employment & Skills Workers will work across DHI’s drug and alcohol treatments services, housing services and social prescribing programmes.

The Employment & Skills Team will be responsible for providing tailored and effective assessment, support planning and interventions to meet the identified education, training or employment (ETE) needs and goals of clients who face multiple barriers to accessing education, training and/or employment opportunities.
