Employment support

The New Path to Employment Team works alongside the recovery teams at Nottingham Recovery Network.

Helping you to find employment

We help individuals who are currently in treatment and recovery from substance use to find employment. We match employers to individuals, provide employability training and help people to overcome challenges when in work.

You already need to be supported by Nottingham Recovery Network to access our service.


Individuals should speak to their Key Worker/Support Worker if they feel ready to find employment. Our team can be contacted using the email address below.
