About the Role
We are looking for people who have accommodation in which they can offer support to adults with eligible needs and also have the skills necessary to provide that support to a high standard. This can be in your own home, or a second property that you own such as houses, flats or self-contained bedsits.
(Landlords with accommodation, but with no experience or transferable skills need not apply)
We provide services to adults who are assessed as eligible for services provided by Adult Social Care. We are supporting a growing number of providers who are enabling people to be active and valued members of the community. Clients may have Mental Health issues, Learning Disabilities, Autism or Physical Disabilities.
The main ethos of the service is to provide a safe and empowering environment for our clients. We monitor and support providers to help them achieve excellence in accommodation based support. We are a service that promotes choice, assesses and manages risks, and believes in teaching skills that allow people to become as independent as possible.
Candidates will be assessed and following receipt of satisfactory references and DBS check, if successfully approved will receive an income from the rent to each room, plus the weekly support costs to support the individual in the accommodation. Supported Accommodation and Shared Lives Officers will assess the client’s specific needs which will dictate exactly when and what support is required. We will also provide ongoing training, support and monitoring to successful candidates.
The Supported Accommodation Team is the unregulated side of the service, and therefore tends to work with slightly more able clients towards independence. We are looking for people who have space in their own home, or second property/properties that they wish to use to support up to a maximum of eleven clients to secure and maintain safe supportive accommodation in the St. Leonards and Hastings area.
Clients are referred to us, and we assess and then ‘match’ with suitable providers in their area of choice.
Successful candidates will have the relevant skills, ethos and background, and will be supported to develop a high quality service within their accommodation(s).The Supported Accommodation Team are keen to hear from anyone who would like to consider this kind of career. We are specifically looking for candidates who have passion, commitment and experience in working with clients with eligible care needs.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
