Are you highly motivated, empathetic 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 and effectiveness in service delivery to vulnerable people.

• Support worker – You will be motivating and supporting rough sleepers to carry out planned tasks that will enable them to move into and maintain accommodation. The majority of this work will be carried out during the day.
• Lead workers – You will be working with longer term complex rough sleepers to put together and deliver a multi-disciplinary plan to support them into accommodation. You will work closely with local authorities and accommodation providers. Applicants to these posts will need to have relevant experience and knowledge.
You will play a key role in the development of this service and your work will contribute to influencing the future of service provision across the UK. All posts will a level of flexible working.
