This is an exciting opportunity for a Project worker with relevant experience to join the dynamic Housing First  Team in Bradford. The project worker will primarily support victims and perpetrators of domestic abuse.

The principles of housing first are:

  1. People have a right to a home.
  2. Flexible support is provided for as long as is needed.
  3. Housing and support are separated.
  4. Individuals have choice and control.
  5. An active engagement approach is used.
  6. People are supported to identify their strengths, goals, and aspirations.
  7. A harm reduction approach is used.

Always working within these principles, the project workers will utilise an assertive engagement approach to encourage clients to access the project and thereafter provide flexible, client-centred and individualised casework support. The project worker will be working with in an outreach capacity to enable clients to access the services and interventions they need to build their resilience, gain confidence, and acquire the personal and social assets they need to meet their aspirations.
