Job Description:
There is a hidden housing crisis in the South West and over 75,000 children are seriously affected.

Itís almost unthinkable, but itís true. Over 50,000 children in the South West live in conditions officially unfit for human habitation. A further 10,000 are homeless and, in total, 75,000 children are suffering devastating consequences on their health, their education and their chances in life. In these crucial roles, youíll help us tackle this issue head on.

£22,365 pa (pro rata, 28 hrs pw)

As well as helping over 100,000 people each year fight for their rights, get back on their feet, and find and keep a home, Shelter also tackles the root causes of Britainís housing crisis by campaigning for new laws, policies and solutions. One such solution is the National Homelessness Advice Service (NHAS), a major scheme funded by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) that sees us working in partnership with Citizens Advice Bureaux (CABx) to provide a comprehensive two tier system for people facing homelessness. CABx and other local agencies are often the first point of call for the public. Through this service, we are able to share Shelterís specialist housing and homelessness expertise to ensure those in greatest need get the assistance they require.

Working closely with CABx in Dorset, you will help improve the ability of agencies assisting people facing or threatened with homelessness by assessing their training and support needs and delivering an appropriate programme. You will also provide specialist assistance to CABx advisers, to enable them to give high quality advice, and where necessary, accept referrals of cases to provide a free, confidential and impartial housing advice and casework service to clients, including advocacy.

With at least two yearsí experience of full-time advice work, including a minimum of one year providing housing advice, you have a good understanding of the causes and effects of homelessness and are committed to the highest standards of casework. You also have practical experience of planning and delivering training courses/teaching adults, and are able to deliver effective housing and homelessness training. The ability to communicate effectively with people from a wide range of backgrounds is therefore essential, as are the tactical skills to influence others and a genuine team oriented approach. Ref: SH172/G.

We can offer you good conditions of service including pension scheme, 30 days annual leave and flexible working practices.

We are committed to giving all applications equal consideration.
