Pathways Home is a new and exciting service which is aimed at preventing homelessness and supporting those in our community who are vulnerable and at risk. Stonepillow is looking to recruit applicants with experience of supporting people with varying degrees of support needs. You will be working closely with Chichester District Council, and the Supported Accommodation Team within Stonepillow.

This role involves visiting clients in their own homes or at community locations within the Chichester District area covering from Petworth to Selsey. You will be responsible for coordinating interventions to ensure that the right support is provided at the right time or signposting on issues like housing options, tenancy issues (e.g. disrepair or dampness), housing benefits and welfare support, debt, setting up utilities, linking into community services or employment.

Your role is to support vulnerable single people and families 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. This role centers on prevention before they face possible homelessness.

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.

Due to the nature of the role, active and assertive outreach in the community, a full, clean UK driving license is essential.

Closing date: Wednesday 28th April 2021
