Do you believe everyone should have a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life? Do you have the commitment and resilience needed, to work with some of the most vulnerable people in our communities? If the answer is yes, please read on.

Single Homeless Project is a London-wide charity. Our vision is of a society where everyone has a place to call home and the chance to live a fulfilling life.  We help single Londoners by preventing homelessness, providing support and accommodation, promoting wellbeing, enhancing opportunity, and being a voice for change. From supporting people in crisis to helping people take the final steps towards independence and employment, we make a difference to 10,000 lives every year across all 32 boroughs.

As the post-holder, you will be working across our Camden Adult Pathway Hostels,  providing specialist interventions for a designated caseload and to the wider client group, via our in-house recovery programme.  You will also improve access, opportunity and outcomes for service users within schemes, by enhancing their ability to make use of external statutory and community resources through your development of working relationships, with Adult Social Care, Health, Mental Health and other specialist providers. Furthermore, you will give support and guidance to Project Workers and set best practice standards of complex needs support.

To be successful, you will have previous experience of working with either rough sleepers or people with complex mental health, physical health or substance use support needs.  You will also have an understanding of working with people using person-centred approaches, PIE (psychologically Informed Environment), Trauma informed and working collaboratively within a harm minimisation and recovery framework. The ability to manage a caseload and deliver positive outcomes utilising your knowledge of the health and social care sector is also needed.   As is a flexible and creative approach to working with a sometimes hard to engage client group.
