Assistant Support Worker
Stonepillow offers shelter, information and support to empower homeless and vulnerable people to make positive changes in their lives.
Our new Bognor Hostel has being radically updated and now offers 24 hour support and we now need an enthusiastic Assistant Support Worker to help us to provide this support to our service users.
Within this role you will be working within the Hostel providing service users with short term accommodation, identifying their needs, and looking at a suitable move on plan into long term accommodation.
Your role is to assist the Support Worker to engage with 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 service users in our hostel by providing a safe, supportive and non-judgmental service. Duties will include monitoring access to the building and ensuring that the hostel is kept clean and safe, carrying out environment checks and taking appropriate action to maintain the condition of the building.
Good communication skills are essential as you will need to interact with service users and other professionals.
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.
