- Build and maintain strong relationships, and work in partnership with local authorities, health and care services and other relevant agencies to ensure clients receive high quality, person-centred care and support.
We are looking for proactive and creative individuals with experience of working with vulnerable people and supporting a service delivery team. If you enjoy building positive relationships and have excellent planning and organisational skills, then this could be the perfect role for you!
Above all we are looking for passionate people who are committed to the overall aims and objectives of providing care for vulnerable people with a longstanding history of homelessness.
