Housing First Project Worker

Housing First Project Worker

Job Reference No. SWA2659

Innovative specialist project for women experiencing domestic abuse in Islington

Housing First is a new approach to supporting the most entrenched, excluded and hard to reach service users. It focuses on finding permanent housing as quickly as possible and then addressing the issues that have contributed to an individual’s homelessness. This Islington-based Project is a partnership project between Solace Women’s Aid and Fulfilling Lives Islington and Camden (hosted by Single Homeless Project) and will work with homeless women affected by domestic abuse.

We are looking for an experienced, dynamic Project Worker to join our Advocacy and Support Team in Islington.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working intensively with service users and be adept at risk and needs assessment and support planning.

You will be able to demonstrate knowledge of the intersection between domestic abuse and multiple/complex needs, a developed understanding of how this can make it difficult for women to engage with support, and an ability to reflect on your own practice.

CLOSING DATE: Friday 6th April (12noon)
