Partner with the Access Panel’s administrators to prioritise efforts on services with extensive waiting lists, enhancing move-on efficiency.

Increase availability within supported housing by assisting those most in need, such as individuals experiencing homelessness.

Share best practices and learnings with partner organisations to improve skills and contribute to the evolution of services.

Participate in and contribute to initiatives aimed at enhancing the transition process from supported housing.

Support clients in building external relationships, fostering respect, dignity, and community integration.

Guide clients in developing skills and experiences beneficial for independent living, such as budget management, self-care, and life skills.

Uphold the organisations values and methodologies, emphasizing strength-based, client-centered, and trauma-informed approaches for meaningful and lasting recovery.

Conduct safety planning, risk assessments, and management plans in line with safeguarding policies, in collaboration with the safeguarding lead.

Facilitate client access to core programs for further opportunities in employment, education, and personal development.

Participate in professional development activities to maintain the effectiveness in the role.

Maintain accurate and up-to-date case notes and data for reporting purposes.
