Job description

St Martins is a specialist provider of supported accommodation for people who have Mental Health needs complicated by other areas of need, such as from learning disability, drug and alcohol addictions and forensic histories.

We are opening a 24 hours Supported Housing Project within the London Borough of Lambeth for 18 people. People who use the service will usually be of working age and may have spent considerable time in psychiatric hospital before coming to the project. People may have offending backgrounds and some will have had difficulties associated with drug or alcohol misuse. Support will be provided to people to help them to remain in the community as opposed to returning to institutional care and furthermore to be provided with opportunities to gain the capabilities and confidence needed to thrive and move onto more independent living in the future.

Support workers provide important practical and emotional help to service users and provide support to senior colleagues in delivering structured services that are created through our support planning processes.

You will be passionate about working with vulnerable adults, and you will work alongside our Project Workers to provide the best possible day to day service to our service users. This will include accompanying clients to appointments, encouraging them to budget, plan and prepare their own meals and help them progress on their path to recovery.

This post is subject to an Enhanced DBS Check.

Closing Date: 22nd May 2020

Interviews will be held on an ongoing basis.
