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.
Simon Community Scotland is the largest provider of homelessness services in Scotland, with a reputation for excellence. Everything we do is about and for people: the people we support, our staff, our partners and everyone affected by homelessness.
Our Streetwork service in Edinburgh supports people with exceptional needs and we need exceptional people to help us. At Streetwork we are wholly focused on supporting people to be safe, to get off the streets and into accommodation where we continue to provide support to help them stay safe. Our values matter to us and we are looking for people who share those, who are committed to making a positive difference, and who are skilled in relating to people and working in a person-centred way to support resolution and recovery from homelessness.
We currently have a number of opportunities for Support Workers to join our team, see attached job description. Our work takes place 7 days a week at times that meet the needs of the people we support. Support Workers also contribute to covering our Helpline overnight on a rota basis.
