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.

The people referred into the service will have been working alongside Derbyshire Outreach Team as part of the joint response by Pathways of Chesterfield, the Derbyshire & Staffordshire Moorlands Partnership and P3 to the Covid19 pandemic. People may have recently moved into permanent accommodation, may still be in temporary accommodation or could still be rough sleeping. They will require intensive, wrap around support to address their accommodation needs as well as any other areas that due to their complex, entrenched nature, cause barriers to a more positive lifestyle.

Link Workers will work intensively with people to develop a positive relationship, supporting people in an unboundaried, flexible way in line with the values and principles of Pathways of Chesterfield.
