About the Role

Goleudy’s mental health and substance misuse support teams provide a unique service for individuals living with or recovering from mental health issues who are Care managed. We also have a team in supported accommodation that supports people who have experienced homelessness and substance misuse. 

At our Willow (registered with the Care Inspectorate Wales) and ROADS projects, we offer safe and secure accommodation with support tailored to the needs of the individual. Each tenant has a self-contained one-bedroom flat with their own individual kitchen and bathroom and access to communal areas. Support is person-centred allowing tenants to make choices about their lives, aspirations and goals. 

We provide support for a wide range of needs that include:

  • Maintaining a tenancy

  • Budgeting and Benefit Entitlement

  • Daily living skills

  • Managing emotional, mental and physical health

  • Managing medication (in Willow Project)

  • Employment / Volunteering / Educational opportunities

  • Social opportunities

  • Support networks/ relationships

We cover 4 local authority areas with a range of services that include 24-hour hostels, intensive and preventative floating support, rough sleepers outreach services, supported housing and mental health & substance misuse services. 

We prevent homelessness, provide housing, create opportunities, and tackle poverty and social exclusion. Our job is to improve the lives of people who are threatened with, or experience homelessness, a housing crisis, or mental health (MH) issues and trauma.
