Humankind’s ‘Independent Living Unit’ offers a range of housing-related support services, advice and guidance to help people obtain accommodation and progress towards a sustained independent lifestyle in the community.  We work with a wide variety of clients, often with histories including substance misuse, offending, mental ill health and homelessness, to overcome barriers and achieve social inclusion. 
An opportunity has arisen to join our successful Darlington ‘floating’ support service as a Support Worker. The service, ‘Support for All’, provides housing related support to individuals aged 25 years and over throughout Darlington.  Support is provided through home visits and drop-in sessions at community venues and Humankind’s centrally located office.
Your motivation to enable individuals to improve their quality of life is vital to this role. You will support clients to set up and maintain their home, maximise their income and pay rent, reduce debts, manage the safety and security of their accommodation, and maintain their health and wellbeing.
