Are you committed about working with and supporting young people into independence? Do you have the drive, creativity and personal qualities, which will encourage and coach our clients into developing life skills to manage living independently? Then 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.
We currently have a new opportunity for you to join our Young People's Floating Support Service. The service supports Lambeth care leavers, who have experienced multiple disadvantages, as they transition to independent living and provides accommodation and support to young asylum seekers who are navigating the UK's immigration system.
As a Senior Support Worker, you will provide casework support and supervision to a small team of floating support workers based in Lambeth. You will also, in conjunction with the Service Manager, be responsible for the day to day running of a small residential Project based in Leytonstone, where you will provide casework support to seven young asylum seekers.
We run services that are creative, responsive and that provide a foundation which empowers our young people to achieve their aspirations and make positive and sustainable life changes. You will be crucial to making that happen.
If you think you have what it takes, particularly if you have experience of working with young people, then we would love to hear from you. We welcome applications from those with lived experience and who have transferable skills.
