We have a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic and caring Support Worker like you (known internally by us as Support Worker – Level 2) to join our service which offers support to customers who are at risk of becoming homeless or currently homeless. Many of our customers have support needs around substance misuse, family networks, learning disability and mental health.
An experienced Support Worker or Assistant Project Worker, you’ll help change lives for the better by assisting in delivering identified tasks based upon customers’ individual needs and aspirations, as identified within their personal support plans.

Together you will really make a difference, empowering our customers to develop the independent living skills they need to successfully move on with a positive future.

So to free up your time, you’ll be given the latest IT kit, which could include a Surface Pro tablet and smart phone, supported by our new online integrated IT system which means that you don’t have to be in the office as you can complete support plans on the go. You’ll also be paid between customer visits and for your mileage too.
