Creative Support, a not-for-profit provider of social care services, is pleased to be working in partnership with Liverpool City Council to provide a new floating support service for vulnerable adults across North Liverpool. The service will provide a tiered, time-limited support service for adults and young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the community. You will work with individuals with a range of support needs including mental health issues, alcohol and substance misuse issues, people with a learning disability and/or physical disability and people from the refugee community. The service will be based at a Community Hub in North Liverpool which will house the support team, provide drop-in services, courses and activities, and a touch-base service.

You will work alongside our Community Hub Coordinator and Referrals and Allocation Coordinator to provide a specialist person-centred focused support service that enables our most complex service users to develop and maintain essential life skills and feel empowered to live independently in the community. You will manage a case load of complex clients, providing direct support to service users in your area of specialism in accordance with their support plans and aspirations. You will support people to access other services that will be beneficial to their physical, emotional and financial wellbeing and you’ll support people to access meaningful and engaging activities at the Hub and in the local community, with the aim of supporting people to be active and equal citizens.

You must be a positive individual with an empathetic approach to meeting the needs of our service users. It’s essential that you’re able to work independently using your own initiative and as part of a team, and that you have good verbal and written communication skills. Experience of working in a community-based service is desirable as is the ability to drive. You must also have at least two years’ experience of providing support to vulnerable adults.

Our range of benefits to ensure job satisfaction includes:

• Guaranteed Contracted Hours
• Free life assurance
• Pension with company contribution
• A range of employee discounts

Creative Support is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to delivering local high quality care through a well-established and supported local work force.
