Do you have an interest in ending homelessness and making a difference to people's lives?




Are you a highly motivated, empathetic individual looking for a challenge?




With a clean UK driving license?




Then the role of Assistant Support Worker at Thames Reach could be just the opportunity you've been looking for. Our Assistant Support Worker’s play a pivotal part in our inspiring work, helping homeless people get off the streets, back on their feet and looking forward to a brighter future.




With the help of our experienced senior staff and management, you will be supported and trained to use your strong communication and creative problem-solving skills. You will receive regular supervision from experienced staff who will both guide your work and encourage and facilitate your personal development.




This is a challenging but extremely rewarding role that requires you to assertively reinforce our message that rough sleeping is an unsafe choice and give individuals you meet clear information about their available options and the necessary encouragement and support so they can make an informed choice to move away from the street.




London Street Rescue provides support to approximately 1200 people a year sleeping rough across 20 London boroughs. We are committed to ending rough sleeping and pride ourselves on our partnership working approach.


As Assistant Support Worker you will:


·         Provide a rapid response to referrals we receive ensuring people sleeping rough across London are looked for within tight time scales – a clean driving licence, held for 12 months is an essential requirement of this role.


  • Directly support clients, identifying activities that will assist in their journey towards recovery and away from life on the streets.
  • Maintain and support links with community programmes and resources.
  • Ensure that all paperwork is completed and work is recorded and monitored.




And have:




  • A commitment to providing a high standard of service.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Honesty, reliability and a mature and thoughtful approach to equal opportunities and diversity in service provision.
  • The ability to learn and an enthusiasm for training and acquiring new skills.




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.
