Connection Support provides a breadth of specialist support services to a range of people facing complex life challenges. Our specialist support is tailored around the person and makes a difference to their life now but also provides building blocks to help them help themselves in the future.
We provide flexible and tailored support and advice to a range of adults (young and old) and families in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. The support covers housing support, homelessness, isolation, money management, mental health and drug and alcohol abuse. Often service users have multiple issues which means our work with them is all encompassing.
The Homeless Pathway Support Worker is responsible for providing individual 9-12 month programmes of planned support for up to 12 people (for full time) with a wide variety of support needs who have experienced homelessness. The aim is to help the individuals to become ready and able to find, take on and manage their own tenancy and live independently when they move on from their current supported accommodation.
The aims of the service are to:
Receive referrals from agencies for individuals who are supported within the Oxfordshire Homeless Pathway
Work with them to resolve issues such as rent arrears, debts, budgeting, social isolation, lack of basic essentials such as food & utilities in order to progress and move off the Homeless Pathway
Develop the service users’ skills and knowledge in order to prevent the risk of homelessness arising again.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
