Thames Reach assists homeless and vulnerable people to live in decent homes, build supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. We support people with experience of homelessness as well as vulnerable or isolated men and women who may be in danger of becoming homeless. We specialise in helping people with complex and multiple needs, including mental health issues and drug and alcohol problems.
Thames Reach aims to achieve the highest standards and effectiveness in service delivery to vulnerable people. As part of the Thames Reach team, all staff have a vital role in contributing and shaping the vision of ending rough sleeping and promoting improvement in people’s lives.
Assistant Support Workers are a valuable addition to our teams, working alongside Support Workers and Lead Workers. The Assistant Support Worker role is an entry level role which will give the post holder opportunities to develop further skills and knowledge when working with vulnerable people. You will spend time with service users and have an ongoing caseload. This will include inducting and engaging new service users; as well as identifying activities that will support their recovery and independence.
Thames Reach is committed to achieving a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We value, respect and celebrate diversity. We welcome and encourage applicants from all sections of the community regardless of their history of homelessness, sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation or religious belief.
