Role

The broad aim of our support is to help people resolve or prevent homelessness but we help people to identify the support they need in all areas of their lives, and to plan to have their needs met. We help people to develop their support plans which are based on their needs and wishes and designed around their individual circumstances. Support is based on the psychologically informed environment and trauma informed care principles, and our approach is underpinned by the Housing First principles.

To best meet people’s needs, we work in partnership with a wide range of agencies and so working effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary team is central to the Support Worker role.

A number of people who use our services are not originally from the UK and they have varying levels of English language abilities. We want the diversity of the population we support to be reflected in our staff team and welcome applications from nationals of other countries who are fluent in English as their second language. We especially need people who can communicate in Polish.
