Support Assistant - Newport 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. 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 be a good listener and able to encourage young people to do things for themselves, helping them build their skills and confidence. 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.
