However, we have excellent support provision and there are a number of services in Leeds working together around street homelessness including from the Local Authority, VCSE sector and NHS.
This is an exciting new role with in a newly funded service for those rough sleeping ‘and at risk of’. The model has been co-produced with partners/practitioners across the sector working with those experiencing street homelessness. This service also aims to build on the small number of pilots to address barriers to accessing mental health services using a psychological trauma informed approach. The post holder will be joining a new multidisciplinary team within the Working Age Adult Community Services.
