You will also provide weekly outreach sessions at Cranhill Development Trust based in the east of Glasgow.

Our ideal candidate will have experience of providing high-quality advice and advocacy support on areas such as homelessness, destitution, health and social work referrals as well as specialist advice on accessing Home Office support. You will have the skills to be able to offer a blended approach, offering a combination of telephone, digital and face to face support.
