The opportunity

We have a rare and exciting opportunity for a Young People’s Nurse to join our team of dedicated professionals as part of a truly innovative and responsive service that is committed to improving young people’s long-term health and wellbeing.

About us

Compass REACH is a nurse-led service that delivers evidence-based psychosocial interventions to children and young people aged 9 – 19 (up to 25 for those with special educational needs or disabilities) who live in North Yorkshire.

It is the specialist young people’s drug and alcohol treatment provider for young people who have been screened as having moderate or high levels of need with regard to substance misuse/alcohol. 

The service also works with children and young people who may benefit from receiving early help and prevention work in relation to emotional wellbeing and mental health issues.

Our team of qualified nurses can also deliver work to existing service users around sexual health matters.
