Aspire are looking for a Housing Case Manager to support people with spinal cord injuries through the provision of housing advice, guidance and advocacy.
Our research shows that only 14% of spinally injured people are discharged from hospital to a permanent, accessible home. The rest face inappropriate housing in the form of unadapted properties and hostels. Providing one-to-one assistance to those in these situations, challenging statutory provision and decisions, ensuring that support services are in place and ultimately helping people move on from these situations and into permanent accessible housing will form the core of this new role.
You will be working directly with out users, predominantly through a telephone service, and building relationships with, amongst others, staff at hospitals, local authorities and clinical commissioning groups. An experienced case manager or advocate, you will have a good understanding of housing issues or housing rights and be confident using your knowledge to improve the lives of those you are working with.
