Staff will receive and process referrals on behalf of vulnerable adults, carry out an assessment of their needs and develop a support plan to address them, in conjunction with the client. Support will include acting as the first point of contact for clients to achieve a secure housing environment, reduce social isolation and promote integration into the community. Support Workers will also coordinate the activities of Support Assistants and will act as a resource for the team in respect of specialist areas.

Candidates will need to have a relevant professional qualification in housing or social work, or equivalent experience, and demonstrable experience of providing a high quality, client-focussed service to vulnerable people.
