Job Description

Your role is to support homeless adults who may be experiencing a number of complexities including Mental Health and/or Substance misuse issues or who may be in some other way socially disadvantaged. 

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

Within this role, you will be working within the Supported Accommodation Team, which provides clients with 2 years supported accommodation, offering weekly keywork sessions to our residents to support them with their needs, and looking at a suitable move on plan into long term accommodation.  

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, working closely with other projects within Stonepillow to identify a move on pathway, as well as external agencies.

It is essential that you will 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.

The role involves lone working, and will cover Chichester and Arun supported accommodation services.
