Job Description

Stonepillow support and empower homeless and vulnerable people to achieve sustainable independence and wellbeing and make positive changes in their lives.

You will be working within the long standing Stonepillow service which has been in operation since the start of our charity in 1989. Chichester Hostel provides homeless clients with short-term accommodation identifying their support needs, building empowering support around those needs, and looking at a suitable move on plan into long-term independent accommodation.

The Hostel offers 11 bedrooms in the main hostel and an additional 12 bed service called Hicks House. It has 24/7 cover consisting of support workers, assistant support workers and night support workers.

Your role will be to support homeless adults who may be experiencing a number of complexities including Mental Health, Substance misuse issues, and are homeless in the community.

The aim of the role is to support and signpost clients into services that will improve their housing, health and wellbeing while improving the client’s quality of life. This is achieved through the provision of engagement and individualised support plans, targeted interventions, signposting and group work. You will work proactively to form strong relationships and gain clients' trust, striving to provide the best possible service levels at all times.

It is essential that you have a non-judgmental and enabling approach to supporting single homeless and vulnerable adults and have experience and knowledge of Health, Housing and Work issues facing service users who are in recovery.
