Rough Sleeper Initiative Navigator – Rochdale/Oldham Based


Fixed Term contract to March 2025

The Rough Sleeper Initiative is an Outreach programme, for which Sanctuary Trust receives funding from Oldham and Rochdale Councils.

“Navigation” is a vital part of helping individuals experiencing multiple disadvantages to move away from rough sleeping. It is an approach that is distinct from outreach or other forms of engagement.

The aim of navigation is to better coordinate existing services. Navigators play an important role in identifying blocks and barriers within existing systems and finding solutions. Some of the things our Navigator will do –

  • hold a small but complex caseload of individuals, acting as key worker
  • carry out needs assessments, risk assessments, safeguarding
  • facilitate access to services, eg. housing, health and social care, mental health, substance misuse, criminal justice

Our new RSI Navigator needs to be a driver with access to a car (mileage will be reimbursed) and must be willing to work unsociable hours and lone work.

Sanctuary Trust are IIP accredited and are Disability Confident Committed
