We are looking to recruit to our busy day centre in the centre of the town, which is often the first port of call for anyone homeless or at risk of homelessness. Our Assessment Team offer the following services:

 

  • Access to outreach support and emergency accommodation

  • Reconnection support

  • Private Rented Sector approved partners

  • Access to homeless healthcare

  • Free food, shower and washing facilities

  • Support and advice to entrenched rough sleepers to find a new way to live away from the streets. 

  • Support for people with complex and multiple needs, including substance misuse and mental health problems.

 

To be considered for this role, you will need the demonstrable ability to work within a highly effective, person centred day centre service for clients, some with complex needs. Your experience must include the holistic assessment of need, support and risk, and multi-agency casework planning.

 

Organised, adaptable, and an excellent communicator, you will be enthusiastic about working in a psychologically informed environment, and creative in your approach to service delivery. You are resilient in, and motivated by, a constantly changing and busy environment.
