Housing Project Worker

Project: East Lancashire

You will be someone who shares our belief in the inherent capacity and potential of all individuals and that empowering individuals to support each other leads to positive change; not only for themselves, but also for their communities.

We believe that everyone has the potential to change, grow and learn and achieve the best they can in everything they do. We know it takes courage and commitment to change, which is why we have a passion statement, rather than a mission statement. Being passionate means being:

  • brave enough to say when something isn’t good enough
  • humble enough to accept and learn from criticism
  • willing to take responsibility for making things better
  • creative and daring enough to innovate
  • determined to persist when things get tough

You will be employed as part of a designated housing team providing housing and recovery support to people who have a history of substance and/or alcohol issues engaging with Inspire Substance Misuse Service and who are experiencing accommodation problems. Working within a Psychologically Informed Environment you will be responsible for identifying individuals appropriate for recovery housing locally and managing the referral and assessment pathway. For residents residing in Emerging Futures community recovery housing you will provide case coordination and risk management and provide both opportunistic and structured interventions.

You will work closely with Inspire, local Emerging Futures recovery housing provision, partner organisations, housing, welfare and education and training providers to develop integrated, recovery infrastructures that engage, support and navigate individuals from the vulnerability of addiction to established wellbeing and meaningful activity in the community.

In collaboration with CGL/Inspire you will support individuals through a detoxification pathway. This includes onward referrals to appropriate housing provision to enable those detoxing the best possible chance in a community setting.
