ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Support Coach, you will contribute to successfully rehabilitating and reintegrating our participants back into the community. You will work alongside various stakeholders and partners and engage with our participants through various key working activities to identify the needs, goals and skills, then provide pathways, support, and appropriate interventions to support with successful resettlements.
Shift Pattern: Monday to Sunday: 8am to 9.30pm on a rolling rota pattern, approximately 3 shifts per week over 37.5 hours
ABOUT THE SERVICE
Penrose Drive IAP works with high-risk offenders who are supervised by the Probation Service and is a vital element in public protection arrangements. Penrose Drive can house up to 25 adults of all ages who identify as men and provides them with enhanced supervision through 24/7 staffing, night-time curfews, compliance with consistently enforced rules and a programme of supervision, support, and monitoring, which addresses offending behaviour and the reduction of risk.
Penrose Drive IAP is, at heart, a community setting, rather than a custodial one and residents can go out into the community, if they do not have any restrictions on their license. Security is therefore flexible in both design and operation. Independent Approved Premises are required to work within the Enabling Environments Standards Framework, a programme delivered by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
We are based walking distance from Elephant and Castle station which is on the Bakerloo and Northern line.
