Short Job Description:

Creative Support is a non-profit provider of personalised care and support for people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism spectrum conditions, and older people.

You will work alongside our Hub Coordinator Manager and Project Manager to provide an outcome-focused floating support service for people over the age of 16 who are experiencing homeless or at risk of homelessness. The service, which has recently been commissioned by Liverpool City Council, will provide a time-limited support service from a Community Hub in North Liverpool. The service will work with individuals with generic support needs to provide a range of support options including support in peoples’ own homes, drop-in sessions and activities/courses at our hubs and signposting services to ensure people have the support they need to find and maintain tenancies in the local community.

You will manage a case load and provide direct support to service users in accordance with their holistic support plans. You will provide focused support that enables people to develop the necessary skills and confidence to manage a tenancy, access other appropriate services and engage with leisure, training and work related opportunities in the local community. You will promote inclusion, independence and wellbeing with the aim of enabling service users to become active and productive citizens.

Experience is desirable, as is a relevant professional qualification. The position is open to graduates, experienced practitioners, and people looking to start their career in social care.

Creative Support has obtained Investors in People Silver status and you will receive ongoing training regarding the service user group you work with and training regarding changes to the law governing social care.
