Justlife works with the hidden homeless community who live in B&B’s and Guesthouses, and are considered ‘unsupported temporary accommodation’ (UTA). Our vision is to make people’s experience of housing vulnerability as short, safe and healthy as possible.
Based in Higher Openshaw, East Manchester, Justlife currently works across Manchester and Tameside providing re-housing advice, benefits advice and one-to-one key work support to empower vulnerable adults housed in UTA to move towards more secure housing, independent living and improved health and wellbeing. This includes supporting UTA managers and landlords.
The role of Specialist Support Worker involves playing an active part in the Specialist Support Team by taking part in regular outreach visits to UTA’s across Greater Manchester and supporting a caseload of clients that are experiencing varying stages of housing vulnerability.
