The Wallich is a homelessness charity which provides support services to homeless and vulnerably-housed people. The organisation formed in 1978 in Cardiff, and now supports around 4000 people a year across the majority of Local Authorities in Wales. The Wallich's values are of empowerment and treating people with dignity, respect and an unconditional positive regard. The principles of our work are based around solution focused working, harm reduction, and the creation of an environment where the people we support are actively and meaningfully encouraged to be involved in their support, and the development and delivery of services.

The project operates across Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea, in partnership with Integrate (a partnership of eight housing associations) working with women who have substance misuse issues and other complex needs, such as domestic abuse. The service provides residential support with the aim of meeting individuals’ needs, which promote independence and lead to a sustainable move-on. The project also provides housing related support within people’s homes or in the community, with the aim of preventing homelessness and increasing independence.  The project is funded through the Supporting People Programme Grant and is required to meet the Welsh Government’s National Outcomes Framework. The Framework’s four main aims are:
 
• Promoting Personal and Community Safety
• Promoting Independence and Control
• Promoting Economic Progress and Financial Control
• Promoting Health and Wellbeing

Purpose of Role:

To provide residential and floating support that enables and empowers Service Users to address housing and/or personal difficulties, build their skills and confidence, and ultimately improve their ability to maintain their future or current accommodation.  The support will not create or increase dependence. It will ‘do with’ rather than ‘do for’, so it’s likely that support will involve accompanying Service Users initially, in order to familiarise them with an activity or appointment. Support will help people improve their control, understanding and involvement in dealing with the issues that affect them, and assist Service Users to achieve their preferred outcomes. In addition, to assist with the housing management needs of the project ensuring the delivery of a safe, secure and effective service.

Main duties and responsibilities:

1. To provide support to the residents of the project.

2. To visit people in their homes or in the community and provide housing related support.

3. To assist in monitoring the effectiveness of the projects.

4. To assist with the project’s housing management functions.

5. To assist in the overall running of the project.
