It takes passion, commitment, and resilience to be a housing support worker. It's not for everyone, but you are one of those unique people with the right talent. It is challenging work, but the rewards are fantastic. Seeing the look on someone’s face when they get housed, seeing the response when your client is saved from eviction. This is unique work.
Preventing homelessness and its harmful cycles is at the heart of what we do. We see early intervention as critical to this. By utilising our learning, expertise and partnerships we aspire to be a leading voice in the sector of homeless prevention.
At Goleudy, our housing support workers support anyone aged 18+ who needs help managing their tenancy. Our housing support workers help clients manage any tenancy-related issues, in order to prevent homelessness, eviction or tenancy failure.
Your duties will include managing any tenancy-related issues for example:
Debts, arrears and benefits
Searching for alternative accommodation
Setting up a new tenancy
Liaising with gas, water and electricity providers
Housing Support and Advice
Trauma-Informed and Solution Focus approach to person-centred support
