Do you want to make a positive impact on someone’s life?

We are looking to appoint two full-time Floating Support Workers for our busy Floating Support Service in Kensington and Chelsea.

 

Peabody provides care and support services to over 5000 individuals living in London, Essex and the South East of England and we pride ourselves on improving the standard of living for the vulnerable people we support.

Working from a person centred approach, customers are fully involved in planning their own care and support, with staff and customers regularly reviewing their support plans to ensure that support needs and aspirations are continuously reflected.

We aim to deliver high quality and effective support services, which promote the independence, wellbeing and inclusion of customers, in accordance with Peabody policies and procedures and the principles of best practice.

You will manage a caseload of medium to high support need customers, providing outreach support in a range of community settings. You will work with customers who have a variety of support needs including mental health, substance misuse and tenancy sustainment issues. The main aim of the service is to support customers to learn the skills required to live independently and to manage/overcome the barriers that prevent them from currently doing so.

Experience of support planning, risk assessment and needs assessment is essential.  It is a demanding service dealing with many complex cases. Some evening and weekend working might be required.

You would be joining a friendly and supportive team who are driven to succeed and make a positive difference to their customer’s lives. We offer an annual bonus scheme, pension and a wide ranging benefits package that also includes healthcare and comprehensive training.

An enhanced DBS check is required for this post.
