Are you passionate about supporting people to make positive changes?
The primary purpose of the Supported Housing Officer role is to work across our Housing Services and support the Service Users to make positive change and gain life skills and meet their goal to move on to independent living.
You would support Service Users to gain life skills and meet their goal to move on to independent living. We do this by working with them on their own individual support plan for around 5 hours a week, helping them to meet their ambitions in areas such as health, budgeting, training and employment. This role will involve working various housing services including but not limited to rough sleepers, people fleeing domestic abuse, single homeless and refugees depending on the service need. This role covers both Ipswich and Lowestoft so access to own transport is essential.
