Do you want to end homelessness and make a difference to people’s lives? Are you highly motivated and looking for a challenge?
At Thames Reach we are committed to helping homeless and vulnerable people to live in decent homes, build supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. Our vision is to end street homelessness and our aim is to achieve the highest standards of effectiveness in service delivery to vulnerable people.

–A good understanding of the issues affecting rough sleepers and vulnerably housed people, including the housing options available for them
– An ability to prioritise workload in a busy environment
– Strong communication skills
Thames Reach is committed to achieving a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We value, respect, and celebrate diversity.
