Permanent, full-time and part time post available
Salary £22,509 – £24,775
Emerging Futures’ greatest resource is its people, so we also offer our employees generous annual leave, pension, employee assistance programme and other benefits.
As a Housing Support Worker, you will provide housing related support and recovery support for people who have a history of failed accommodation placement, substance and/or alcohol misuse, issues with mental health, criminality, and often challenging and negative behaviours. Working within a psychologically informed environment you will be responsible for case coordination of individuals residing in the project and the provision of both opportunistic and structured interventions.
Working with a blend of Housing First and harm reduction techniques, you will be assessing need, preparing tenancy support plans and supporting tenants to achieve their individual goals. Part of your role will include advocating for residents where appropriate, helping residents arrange and attend scheduled appointments, for example, GP, Probation, Job Centre, and substance misuse services.
This role is initially based in Swindon but you may be required to work in other areas of the county as the housing provision expands. Working flexibly on a rota basis, the role will involve covering evening shifts, waking night and weekends and public holidays.
