Our ethos

The Bond Board has been operating since 1993. Our ethos is centred around developing innovative, solution-focused services for homeless households to create a positive difference to the lives of our service users. At the heart of what we do lies a commitment to reach out to the most excluded and disadvantaged people.

About the role

Housing First is a defined approach to ending homelessness, which provides individuals with a permanent offer of independent, stable housing and open-ended wrap-around support.

The Housing First Project Worker is responsible for coordinating and providing a personalised, support service to people with complex needs facing multiple exclusion in line with Housing First principles. The Housing First Project Worker will coordinate and provide a person-centred, strength-based support service in line with Housing First principles creating long-term sustainable tenancies by increasing independence and maximising connectivity with the local community.

Experience is required in delivering wrap-around intensive support to people with multiple and complex issues within their own independent tenancies in the community.

About you

To succeed you’ll need:

  • A good understanding of the services and provision generally available for vulnerable and homeless people in crisis and experience of accessing those services and developing networks across a wide range of services, such as housing, benefits and health.
