Type: Full Time


The only Direct Access accommodation based in Mendip for rough sleepers, Dairy House (DAC) provides up to two short-term assessment beds and four pre move on beds to help Mendip citizens on their journey to sustainable accommodation.
Dairy House is not a typical homeless hostel! The house is located in an idyllic setting at the heart of a working farm near Stratton on the Fosse surrounded by explorable farmland, woods, orchards and gardens. The majority of people sleeping rough in Mendip are self-isolating, living outside of the built up areas-Dairy House offers a softer transition from this lifestyle.

We are seeking Mentors and Befrienders who can help the residents by listening, talking, teaching, supporting, encouraging, signposting and generally being part of their new family. Previous experience is not necessary but an interest in adult health and social care would be an advantage.
