Job description

Caring in Bristol’s prevention services aim to reach people where they are, targeting under-served communities, surmounting the barriers many face to accessing help. Young people and economically deprived wards of the city are a particular priority, with the majority of our current operational delivery in South Bristol (Hartcliffe and surrounding wards). We maximise our impact through committed and creative outreach to key groups who would not otherwise access support.

The postholder will be responsible for two key projects for adults experiencing housing insecurity:

• Early Doors: Launched in 2021 and delivered with additional expertise from a partner charity (Housing Matters), Early Doors tackles homelessness by empowering community members with information about their rights, and support to access the services they need. The project is informed by research and coproduction, enabling it to respond to the needs of its target communities. Through a combination of consultation, community outreach and 1-to-1 support; Early Doors enables people to take action that prevents homelessness occurring or escalating.

• Bristol Goods: Emerging from our hugely impactful food service during the pandemic, Cheers Drive, this service is another key implement in Caring in Bristol’s homelessness prevention toolbox. Bristol Goods operates food clubs that help tackle our members’ food insecurity while opening up their access to further housing advice and support. The food clubs are powered by volunteers with staff support. At present, we run 3 successful food clubs in Hartcliffe, Imperial Apartments and for young people at our central HQ.

These are still relatively new initiatives, and the Prevention Services Manager will have a unique opportunity to shape their evolution. One key responsibility is to actively demonstrate the impact of the work with evidence – the postholder will ensure effective monitoring and evaluation shapes the services and can demonstrate what ‘best practice’ looks like to the sector in Bristol and beyond.

The role will have line management responsibility for project staff including the Food Project Manager, Housing Rights Support Worker and Outreach & Groupwork Coordinator.

The postholder will work closely with our other operational managers to ensure that our volunteer management, safeguarding systems and performance monitoring are best practice.


1. Oversee delivery and lead on the development of our community-based homelessness prevention services (Early Doors and Bristol Goods), including on-site participation where appropriate.

2. Leadership of the staff team that deliver these projects; providing line management and development opportunities as well as facilitating team meetings and case reviews. This will also involve coordination and oversight of some staff at any partner charities we may commission to co-deliver the work.

3. Develop effective collaborative networks and partnerships with key organisations in the relevant communities for our prevention projects, promote the broader work of CiB, act as a representative of the charity.

4. Work closely with the Head of Operations and Youth Services Manager to develop a consistent approach and operational resilience, including participating in the on-call support rota for all services.

5. Contribute to the senior management of Caring in Bristol, influencing the strategic direction of the charity. Act as the lead for Lived Experience within the staff team, advocating for the voices of our services users and that community representation is built in to all our work, ensuring the charity reflects our city.
