Hostel Support Worker
Stonepillow offers shelter, information and support to empower homeless and vulnerable people to make positive changes in their lives.
Recently Stonepillow has gone through a number of organisational changes, including the 2 Night Shelters being radically updated to now offering 24 hour support in both, meaning we now need to recruit more support workers in both of our hostels.
Within this role you will be working within one of the Stonepillow Hostels that provide clients with short term accommodation, identifying their needs, and looking at a suitable move on plan into long term accommodation.
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.
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.
