This includes attendance at identified training courses and exhibiting behaviours which demonstrate respect for colleagues, clients and all other stakeholders, and which positively supports the reputation and work of the organisation.

Project Description

The project is located in Cardiff and works with homeless and vulnerably housed individuals. The service provides residential support with the aim of meeting individuals’ needs, which promote independence and lead to a sustainable move-on. 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:

Purpose of Role

To provide residential 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 accommodation.

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, Responsibilities and Person Profile

2.  To assist in monitoring the effectiveness of the projects ensuring objectives and targets are met.
