Emerging Futures works across the country to support people affected by homelessness, addiction, and mental health challenges. Our greatest resource is our people, so we also offer generous annual leave, pension, employee assistance programme and other benefits.

About The Role

As a Floating Support Worker, you will work across the city supporting individuals experiencing substance misuse issues who are at risk of homelessness.

You will be assessing need and providing tenancy and harm reduction support to keep people in their homes and accessing drug and alcohol services. You will support referrals to other appropriate services such as mental health, probation, GP's, and job centres.  As part of the role, you will work with partner agencies to provide a collaborative approach to reducing homelessness.

All Support Workers receive an in-depth training package to provide you with the skills you need to support people in the community.

About you 

  • You will have some experience working in a support role, but we will provide you with the knowledge and training you need to work with clients in a holistic and person-centred way.
  • You are compassionate, energetic, reliable, and committed to improving the health and wellbeing of those experiencing homelessness and rough sleeping.
  • Patience and resilience will come naturally to you. You should have good interpersonal and listening skills as you will be supporting people with challenging mental health problems.
  • Above all, you will be enthusiastic and have a genuine desire to support people to transform their lives
