In my role as a housing officer at Nacro, my duties are to provide advice, support and assist offenders at HMP Chelmsfrod, who have difficulties in accessing housing. I am responsible for arranging 1 to1 assessments, multi agencies and group sessions. This service offers offenders to obtain advice and information on tenancy, housing benefit and rent arrears issues.
Another responsibility that my role involves is rehabilition, focusing on what the agencies can offender upon release, this requires effective liasion with local and statory housing/agencies. This requires me to advocate on their behalf, either verbally or in writing. .
In order to benchmark how the service is working for offenders, I am required to accuratlely maintain and record Key Proformance Target on a monthly basis, which is monitored throughout the Eastern region for the Prison Service, whilst recording and updating Nacro statistics.
