Supported Accommodation Services in Lancashire

Barnardo's provides supported accommodation to young people aged 16-24 across seven sites in Lancashire. The service aims to provide young people with the skills, knowledge and confidence needed for independent living. The young people who live in our accommodation are from a range of backgrounds and are often either in the process of Leaving Care or have experienced homelessness. The services are staffed 24 hours per day by a dedicated team. Young people can live within our accommodation for up to 2 years so that they can move on successfully to their own accommodation in a planned and coordinated way.  

The service that this post links to is: 

Preston Foyer – this service is based on Lawson Street, Preston and provides accommodation and support for 16 young people at any one time. The young people each have a self-contained 1-bedroomed flat

08:00 – 16:00
11:00 - 19:00
14:00 – 22:00 

Initial Specific Responsibilities

In addition to a full time permanent post, we wish to recruit to a full-time fixed-term maternity cover post as part of this recruitment process. The end date of the fixed term contract will be 19th January 2023. We will discuss this option further with candidates as part of the interview process.

24 hour staffing 7 days per week is required at this service and we wish to identify a new person to join our team of reliable and high quality workers to assist us in the delivery of this service.

The successful candidates will be skilled at working with young people who have a range of issues. They will be able to work effectively, sometimes on their own, within a supported accommodation environment to ensure the young people are safe and able to develop their independent living skills.
