About Cambridge House

Our vision

We pursue a vision of a society without poverty where all people are valued, treated equally and lead fulfilling and productive lives. 

Our work

As austerity measures and far-reaching welfare reforms come into full effect we are driven to address their combined effects on existing levels of poverty and the equity and cohesion of society. In 2017/18 we provided services to 187,000 people across the following portfolio:

1. Social Justice Services

  • Safer Renting
    • Specialist advice, support and advocacy for vulnerable tenants of criminal landlords.
  • Independent Advocacy
    • Independent professional and community advocacy for adults and children with disabilities.
  • Law Centre 
    • Free, independent and expert legal services in housing, employment and welfare benefits.

2. Education and Inclusion Services

  • Youth Empowerment
    • Medium to long-term, intensive and wrap-around schemes for excluded 16 to 21-year olds.
  • Disabled Peoples’ Empowerment
    • Arts, sports, life skills and wellbeing clubs for disabled children and adults.

3. Our people’s social action centre

We manage our building as a community hub so that it is a focal point for local communities and civic activity, a home for voluntary and community organisations, and a space where local people and statutory agencies can come together to promote and bring about positive social change. 

4. Research and knowledge exchange projects

We organise activities that generate and collate evidence of what delivery strategies are most effective at tackling poverty and social exclusion at a local level and establish opportunities for evidence sharing and knowledge exchange.

 

Working at Cambridge House is immensely rewarding. If you would like to be part of this very special organisation and believe that you can contribute to our work, we welcome an application from you.
