Pathways is a Chesterfield based charity offering support and advice to people that are homeless and vulnerably housed.
Our mission is to prevent homelessness. We aim to eradicate rough sleeping within our community, and to support those without a permanent home to obtain and maintain one by providing clients with the help, skills and the confidence to resolve their issues of homelessness.
Pathways is the single point of access for single homeless people in Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire and Bolsover. We are looking for a Link Worker to support the work of Pathways. We are seeking someone who has passion and experience in supporting vulnerable people, with strong organisation skills, confident in communication, with an ability to manage competing demands.
The Link Worker will deliver the Keeping Everyone In service, working across Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire and Bolsover with people who have experienced or are at risk of rough sleeping.
