“Full citizenship for all people living with a mental illness in Australian society”
Since the beginning of the service in mid-2018, Neami’s Street to Home service has housed almost 150 people who were sleeping on the street and in parks in the Adelaide CBD, making a difference to individuals and the community. Street to Home provides culturally appropriate, assertive outreach and case management with people sleeping rough in the Adelaide CBD within a Housing First approach. Street to Home also provides access to primary health and other health and support services through clinicians at the hub and via street outreach and post-crisis support once people move into their new home.
The Street to Home team is a multidisciplinary team consisting of a service manager, service coordinators, a team of community rehabilitation and support workers, peer support workers, registered nurse, general practitioner and an operational support officer. Neami Street to Home service is underpinned by a collaborative recovery model, lived experience, trauma informed practice and a quality and safety framework. Neami Street to Home is a key partner in the Adelaide Zero Project, a collective impact project with the goal to end rough sleeping homelessness in the inner city by 2020.
The Service Manager is responsible for leading a multi-disciplinary team to implement, deliver and evaluate high-quality services, as well as ongoing development of the service. Reporting to the Regional Manager Complex Needs, the Service Manager is a member of the Neami State Leadership Team and demonstrates leadership in effective relationships with funders, partners and within the broader Neami organisation.
The Service Manager will demonstrate leadership and work collectively with partners to contribute, improve and develop the overall service response to rough sleepers.
