Do you believe everyone should have a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life?
At SHP (Single Homeless Project), you’ll be part of one of London’s leading homelessness prevention charities, a dynamic and growing organisation changing 8,000 lives every year across London - from supporting people in crisis to helping them take the final steps towards independence and employment.
SHP was founded by a group of homeless people in the mid-1970s and more than 40 years on, we still try to look at the world through our clients’ eyes, putting their needs and viewpoints at the centre of everything we do. Above all, we believe that, no matter what challenges they face, everyone we work with has the capacity to take control of their lives and shape their own futures.
About the role:
This is a fantastic opportunity to stretch your skills and develop further into a specialist role by joining our newly restructured Wandsworth Mental Health Accommodation Services. You must have experience of working with people with complex needs, ideally in an accommodation setting.
You should also have (or have ability to develop) the more practical experience of group work for a client group that might be resistant to engage or change.
Defined and developed through best practice, our Opportunities Programme has been developed to instigate and support the process of change and recovery, with daytime workshops and sessions being run such as yoga, mindfulness, arts and arts for therapy, health and well being including sport & fitness, cook and eat, therapeutic horticulture. The programme has elements which are clinically underpinned such as hearing voices groups and SMART recovery.
Reporting to the ROC Team Leader, you will oversee the day to day running of the programmes within the four services in Wandsworth as well as working with the wider ROC team to build new content and share sessions which have achieved the best results.
We are looking for someone who:
Has a creative, analytical and person-centred approach to working within a strengths and recovery model.
Can multi task and thrives under pressure.
Has the ability to respond calmly to crisis and deal promptly, sensitively and safely with complex and challenging situations.
Is a strong, committed and inspiring person who can motivate people.
Has the ability to relate well to others & who can encourage and foster change.
If this sounds like you then we would really like to invite you to please apply online.
