Caroline

I completed a placement in Simon Community NI’s Conway Court as part of my Social Work degree in 2007 and immediately knew I wanted to work in the homeless sector. I felt a real desire to work with individuals and families that were homeless or facing homelessness and so I applied for a Support Worker post when I finished my degree in 2011. I initially worked with young people aged 17-26 and really enjoyed the challenges that this brought.

In 2013, I took on a Team Leader role managing an Accommodation Project on the Falls Road. I feel honoured to have worked with the clients that came through the doors of this Project. They have taught me humility, kindness and empathy, and I am passionate about using the qualities that they show daily, throughout the homelessness sector in Northern Ireland.

Within my current role as a Floating Support Coordinator, I am fortunate to work with some of the leading charities and organisations including the Northern Ireland Housing Executive in order to maximise clients’ opportunities to move on positively, by providing creative solutions, creating organisational partnerships and building on existing relationships.
