Project Description

A varied role supporting street homeless and vulnerably housed clients. Working as part of a close-knit, supportive team on the breakfast run, Zac’s Place, and outreach support across Swansea. We also allocate Emergency Beds and manage chalet accommodation. Our role is to provide humanitarian support short term but also to support clients to move into accommodation with the necessary skills to succeed.

Applicants should be non-judgemental, with a good sense of humour, and a desire to help clients succeed.

Purpose of Role

To provide support that enables and empowers Service Users to address housing and/or personal difficulties, build their skills and confidence, and ultimately improve their ability to access and maintain accommodation. The support will not create or increase dependence. It will ‘do with’ rather than ‘do for’. Support will help people improve their control, understanding and involvement in dealing with the issues that affect them, and assist Service Users to achieve their preferred outcomes.

This role is subject to an Enhanced DBS disclosure.
