We are recruiting for two Housing and Sanctuary Scheme Caseworkers.

If this sounds like you, you may be a good fit as one of two new RISE Housing and Sanctuary Scheme Caseworkers. You will be delivering a flexible, accessible and respectful service, funded by Brighton & City Council, to all survivors of domestic abuse over the age of 16, working flexibly with them and key partners to support them to remain in their own homes, build their social networks and maintain and improve their wellbeing, including co-ordinating the installation of security systems under the newly re-instated Sanctuary Scheme.

On appointment, you will be expected to complete an enhanced DBS disclosure and supply us with references.
