Criminal Justice Liaison and Diversion Practitioner (Band 6) – Buckinghamshire/Berkshire
***Previous applicants need not apply***
Are you an experienced mental health or learning disability nurse, social worker, therapist or health visitor who is passionate about health outcomes for those within the criminal justice system? We’re looking for a highly motivated practitioner to join our Liaison and Diversion Service.
Our Liaison and Diversion Service has been developed to provide an all vulnerability approach to assessments, identification of care pathways and, where indicated, diversion of individuals within and away from criminal justice systems.
Our intervention can occur at any point along the criminal justice pathway. Our main points of activity are police custody suites, courts and probation.
You will be based within custody suites and courts and work with people within the criminal justice system. You’ll identify potential mental health, learning disability or other vulnerabilities and, where necessary, recommend further assessment or care pathways for onward referral or support. Where appliable, your expertise will be shared in court, with your report’s recommendations assisting the judicial process.
This role involves a commitment to close partnership working with both statutory and voluntary sector agencies, and a commitment to working with a complex and diverse range of individuals with varying needs.
