BCHA helps people off the streets, out of abuse, overcome skills barriers and onto independence and work, providing a range of accommodation, support, training and work opportunities.
We are recruiting for an inspirational, compassionate and flexible Support Worker to work with our vulnerable customer group who are alcohol dependent and many of whom have experienced trauma in their lives. This is an opportunity for you to join a caring, experienced team.
This specialist service is innovative and has been developed to support those who are most vulnerable. You will work closely with statutory and non-statutory agencies to reduce barriers to care, support and treatments. We deliver to individuals tailored support for a better quality of life that positively reduces hospital admissions and safeguarding issues. We offer options to older individuals whose alcohol use is at a level which can cause psychological, physical or social harm to better self-manage.
The service provides holistic, person centred care and support by experienced and skilled practitioners who have extensive knowledge and awareness of need and risk in this customer group.
We are looking for people to join us, who genuinely care about people who experience homelessness and related health needs, living on lower incomes and who are in need of social and affordable homes to live in. You will be passionate and creative in all you do, always looking to grow and improve your personal competences and experiences.
For this role this service operates on a 7 day rotating shift pattern.
DBS checks are required for roles where you will be working with or have lone contact with Vulnerable Adults and Children. BCHA is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment.
