Reset Recovery Support Service is a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for adults in Tower Hamlets, London.  We provide a range of recovery focused interventions designed to meet the needs of those experiencing substance misuse issues. At the recovery support service we provide a structured day programme, counselling, housing support, benefits and finance advice, education advice, training and access to employment. We work with a number of specialist partners: NACRO, Bromley by Bow Centre and City Gateway.

As a peer mentor you will be a positive role model for people trying to tackle their problems and will be able to show them that change is possible.​

Peer mentors may be people in recovery, people who have left treatment, or people who have had personal experience of supporting a loved one through treatment.

Many of the people who come to our services are nervous and unsure what to expect. So peer mentors, who have been through treatment and had first-hand experience of the challenges of entering recovery can offer them friendly support and guidance to help them engage.

Change, Grow, Live (CGL) are committed to creating an inclusive environment, which celebrates difference and allows our staff and service users to flourish. We recruit the very best staff from a wide range of backgrounds, ensuring service users benefit from our diverse skills and expertise. We always work to the principles of fairness and equality of opportunity in all our recruitment processes.

We also expect an assertive approach to ensuring the safety and well-being of all children, young people and adults, and applicants to these posts will need to demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to best safeguarding practice.​
