This role is;

To provide a social work service within the Move On Support Team (MOST) to adults with mental health needs who live in various supported or residential accommodation.

To provide comprehensive and holistic person-centred assessments and specialist interventions to enable people to maximise their wellbeing, independence, choice and control regarding their accommodation and support needs.

MOST are a team of Social Workers and Occupational Therapists working alongside our health colleagues and with external providers. Working in collaboration, as part of the assessment and review process, you will ensure that current support plans are personalised, recovery focused and promote independence.
