Cranstoun offer a wide range of services across England, including community-based and residential substance misuse services, supported housing, specialist services for young people and families and carers, and domestic abuse services.

Our skilled and compassionate teams work with service users, families and communities, helping them to make positive changes. We’ve been making a difference since 1969 by combining our expertise with innovative approaches and putting people at the heart of what we do.  

Our Housing First Service provides housing-related support for homeless people in Birmingham. We support them to find and settle into their own independent accommodation. We also work with key strategic partners to help address other social related issues, such as benefit/welfare reform processes, helping to maximise people’s incomes, signposting to relevant primary and secondary health care services and more. The service has expanded, therefore resulting in several opportunities.

As part of the Adults Lead Worker service, The Housing First initiative is one of a number of housing related floating support contracts commissioned by BCC.

The Housing First principles are:

  1. People have a right to a home.
  2. Flexible support is provided for as long as it is needed.
  3. Housing and support are separated.
  4. Individuals have choice and control.
  5. An active engagement approach is used.
  6. The service is based on people’s strengths, goals and aspirations.
  7. A harm reduction approach is used.

As Navigator, you will be expected to provide dynamic, effective day-to-day support to homeless people with multiple and complex needs, supporting them to secure a stable independent home by providing personalised support and case management. Reporting to the Housing First Team Leader, the Navigator will demonstrate a robust knowledge of local housing provision, providers and processes. Above all, the applicant must be enthusiastic, hard-working and ready to take on a challenge.

This is a permanent position.
