Job description: One of Devon's largest Housing Associations is recruiting for a Support Assistant to join one of their sheltered schemes in Bideford for a short term contract, providing person centred support to their residents.

The Role
This role is based within a sheltered housing scheme with a focus on learning disabilities and mental health and the focus of the role is to support people to achieve their personal outcomes, promote independence and provide them with an improved quality of life and better social inclusion.
This will include the following tasks and responsibilities:
*Delivering a 'best practice' support service, appropriate to clients' needs.

*Assisting clients with day-to-day tenancy issues, payment of rent, claiming benefits, preparing units to let.
*Ensuring clients have access to relevant external support services.
*Working with clients to agree and set goals and actions.
*Helping to provide practical support and information to clients when entering the service and throughout their involvement with the service, e.g., assisting clients in the completion of occupancy agreements and welfare benefit claims.
*Promote and encourage a high level of client involvement, consultation and communication.

The Candidate
To be considered for this role, you will require previous experience working within supported housing or a care background.
You will need to be IT literate and able to manage your own workload and act proactively, as you will be lone working.

The Contract
This is a full time role, working 37.5 hours per week, Monday to Friday and alternate Saturdays.
