Supported Housing Services Manager
£34,000 per annum
Worthing Churches Homeless Projects provides a wide range of homelessness services with over 50 staff and 190 volunteers which includes a Day Centre, 25 bed Recovery Project and social enterprise projects. WCHP values specialism and has a mental health nurse and qualified social workers on the staff team. WCHP benefits from strong multi-agency links to take a determined approach to reduce rough sleeping levels. At the heart of this, the Supported Housing Services Manager will manage:
14 bed Short Term Assessment Hostel (24/7 double cover)
Stepping Stones hostel (14 bed medium support).
6 move on and longer term independent living houses
We are seeking an experienced residential/hostel manager with a background in homelessness who can effectively lead staff and volunteers to provide a highly personalised service to the most vulnerable clients often with enduring complex needs.
This is an exciting time of change as WCHP develops new responses to the housing and support needs of rough sleepers such as the building of 6 studio flats attached to STAH for clients who cannot cope with shared hostel living. We therefore seek strategic skills and a passion to evolve/innovate new services in a multi-agency setting. The credibility to develop links and influence key partners will be crucial through an in depth policy and practical understanding of all the issues that surround rough sleeping.
A solid track record is required in operational management that builds the strength, skills and professionalism of staff /volunteers and forges a strong team spirit. Finally, and above all, a manager is needed who puts client involvement at the centre of all service delivery.
