Llamau is daring to imagine a world without homelessness – will you help us to create it?

Llamau’s mission is to end youth homelessness and homelessness for women in Wales. It’s a big ambition and to some people it might seem impossible, but we know that if we all work together, homelessness genuinely doesn’t have to exist.

We’re looking for passionate, talented and tenacious people to join Team Llamau.

The aim of the Gateway Assessment and Support pilot project is to work alongside the Pathways team to ensure relevant housing related support is available to the young people they support who are living in temporary or private rented accommodation. The role will assess the level of need for this cohort of young people, ensure they are receiving adequate housing related support to maintain their accommodation and move towards longer term and secure accommodation. The post holder will also provide housing related support guidance to colleagues within the Pathways team. The post-holder will be the primary access point to all Supporting People funded services for the Pathways to Independence Team.

Llamau are the employer for this role. However, it will be hosted by Newport Children’s Services department, who will also provide day-to-day line management and support.

You’ll be an empathic person, able to understand and respond to the needs of young people as they navigate through a challenging time in their lives. You will support them through key-working sessions and a variety of other ways to develop their confidence and resilience as individuals and help them move to a positive independent future.  You will be able to remain calm and show initiative when faced with challenging situations. 

You’ll be working alongside passionate and supportive colleagues in a rewarding environment, where you’ll be making a huge contribution to creating a Wales without homelessness, every single day.
