Benjamin Blankson
Homelessness Prevention and Advice Officer

Hello, I’m Benjamin, and I’m a Homelessness Prevention and Advice Officer. I’ve been working at Hestia for 2 months now, and already I have become a part of a very enthusiastic and supporting family.

The service provides housing advice and support to homeless adults and people who are at-risk of becoming homeless, who do not meet the priority need threshold for local authority housing.

I have always had the passion to help people and working at Hestia gives me the opportunity to bring comfort and relief to the people who use our service – my managers have also been extremely supportive.

My main responsibilities include supporting service users to sustain or secure accommodation through the creation and execution of Personal Housing Plans, meeting performance targets and service standards, and managing my own caseload effectively and in line with service standards and Hestia Values.

I will delightfully recommend Hestia to others, because the benefits of working at Hestia are unparalleled. My passion and dream to help those in crisis - helping the vulnerable - is now a reality because of Hestia. Thanks Hestia, for the opportunity to serve our service users.

‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world.’
