The Whitechapel Centre’s mission is to prevent and resolve homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty by providing practical, realistic and tailored support. This is so that each person can find a route out of homelessness, maintain a home and achieve their individual potential.
As part of the Rough Sleeper Initiative, their Navigator Service works to deliver real and lasting change for people. This is for people who have complex needs who have a plan or vision for moving on but may need hand-holding through the process, particularly where the plan doesn’t seem to be working for them. A key function of staff working on the project is to identify and break down system barriers to ensure service users gain access to the interventions they need.
They are looking for a skilled support worker with extensive experience in working with people with multiple and complex needs. Someone who can maximise clients’ health, well-being, inclusion and exploit opportunities for development and move on including take-up of wider advocacy, advice and support services on offer.
You will need to be highly organised with the confidence to work well in a multi-agency setting. You will need to use your own initiative to make informed and effective decisions when representing your client’s best interests within key mainstream and specialist housing, welfare benefits, health and social care services.
Funding for this role is in place until 31 March 2022 but is very likely to be extended.
