They are looking for volunteers to assist their Homeless Prevention and Engagement Service to provide high quality 1:1 support to adults with tenancy related issues both within client’s homes and at their drop-in centres.
An excellent opportunity for volunteers wishing to take their volunteering a stage further and work more autonomously, honing previously learned skills and abilities. Additional training can be provided to enable volunteers to take on a small client case load of their own at which time they would be responsible for planning and carrying out a programme of support with clients.
Homeless Prevention volunteers must ensure client confidentiality and keep accurate client records. Accordingly, the ability to be organised and maintain excellent paper systems is essential.
Other tasks may include administration duties such as:
• Making and receiving telephone calls from partner agencies, clients and other professionals
• Assisting Service Users in completing forms for financial/other services
• Completing relevant forms (either electronic or paper)
• Carrying out research (i.e. around grant making organisations)
• Carrying out research for accommodation for rough sleepers
• Data input
What are they looking for?
Initially, volunteers will shadow workers for as long as necessary to ensure that they fully understand their role and feel confident delivering tenancy related support to clients who often present with challenging and complex needs.
When: Mornings/Afternoons, Mon-Fri
Age requirements: Over 18
