Seaview Outreach / Housing Worker (37.5hrs p/w).
An exciting new vacancy has come up as part of the Housing First team at the Seaview Project as a rough sleeper Outreach and Housing worker. The successful applicant will be part of a nationally funded service, The Rough Sleepers’ Initiative (RSI) and will be responsible for verification of Rough Sleepers in Hastings and St Leonard’s on Sea, carrying out welfare checks and encouraging them to engage with support including re-housing and a range of other opportunities through the Hub.
The hub is set up specifically to assist with housing and other needs including mental health needs, safeguarding, substance misuse and more. In addition to early morning verification counts, there is a requirement to engage with rough sleepers during the day and to respond to alerts where rough sleepers have been seen and to offer support and encourage engagement with the relevant services.
Although most of the work involves engaging rough sleepers on outreach, some follow up work will also be required when rough sleepers are housed to help prevent further instances of homelessness. If you relish a challenge and would like to work as part of a multi agency team to tackle rough sleeping, this post could be for you. If have a passion for supporting vulnerable people, we would like to hear from you.
