Charity registered in Scotland SC003076

Streetwork’s mission is about enabling a life off the streets for those most vulnerable in Edinburgh.  We specialise in supporting people who face severe and multiple disadvantage, with an emphasis on helping people who experience multiple exclusion homelessness and complex needs.

We focus on where people are most at need and risk – whether on the streets or in communities. We don’t wait for people to find us; we find them.  We work with people on their own terms and pace towards sustainable change.


Current vacancies

Volunteering Coordinator

  • Full time
  • £23,507 – £24,898
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 28th October 2019

Simon Community Scotland is the largest provider of homelessness services in Scotland, with a reputation for excellence. Our vision is that everyone should have a safe place to live and access to the support they need. Everything we do is about and for people: the people we support, our staff, our partners and everyone affected by homelessness. Our values are built into every area of activity and tell the story of how people remain at the heart of the Simon Community.

Our Streetwork Service in Edinburgh has a rich heritage of being there and meeting the practical and emotional needs of people who are homeless in our capital city. We have great ambitions for the future and plan to extend our reach further, to those who need us most, through embedding volunteering across our Streetwork Service. We want to help people resolve their homelessness situation: to find and keep a home but we understand that this can be a long road and one which volunteers can play a key part in.

Our Volunteering Coordinator role is ideal for someone who can galvanise the support of the public, build positive relationships and partnerships, lead projects and initiatives, and crucially, build a volunteering programme that brings genuine value to the organisation and a fantastic experience for our volunteers.

You must be a self starter who can work on your own initiative; motivate and inspire others; drive creative solutions in managing resources and logistic operations; and implement creative volunteer programmes for the benefit of people who need our support.
