Peabody have full time, permanent Outreach Support Worker opportunities in our Kensington & Chelsea Floating Support Service.

The Kensington and Chelsea Floating Support Service is a specialist service that provides short term support which can last between three months to one year.  Our support aims to help customers develop confidence and skills to live independently within their community.  Support includes support around emotional wellbeing, physical health, money and budgeting, social skills and links into work or training. We work with customers across a wide range of housing tenures.  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.

You will manage a caseload of low to medium 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 remain living independently and to manage/overcome the barriers that may prevent them from currently doing so. 

Experience of support planning, risk assessment and needs assessment is advantageous.  Some evening and weekend working might be required.

Please note: Interviews will take place using video call facilities.

**Should your application be shortlisted, you will be invited to complete an online assessment before being considered for interview.**
