Unique Opportunity to Lead a National Programme To Transform the Lives of 500 People Experiencing Homelessness
At Simon Community Scotland, our vision is for everyone to have a safe place to live with access to the help they need. Every day we help make positive things happen for people facing extremely difficult circumstances. Everything we do is about and for people: the people we support, our staff, our partners and everyone affected by homelessness.
LEADING THE WAY
We have been leading on digital inclusion within the homelessness sector for the past 5 years through their national programme Get Digital Scotland. As a response to the pandemic, we launched a new, innovative initiative called Get Connected to help the people we support get online and access all of the benefits of the digital world.
Get Connected Initiatives
WHAT WE DID
We connected 100 people experiencing homelessness with a digital device, unlimited connectivity and support in our Get Connected 100 project - the results were TRULY LIFE CHANGING! (see Podcast and Report below).
We are now expanding this groundbreaking, sector leading project and are looking for a person with drive, passion and ambition to take it to the next level. We have received significant funding to connect a further 500 people experiencing homelessness to the digital world over the next 2 years and we CAN’T WAIT to deliver more incredible outcomes for the people we support.
WHAT WE NEED
We need an outstanding candidate to join our award winning team, to lead our national digital inclusion programme (Get Digital Scotland) and to be a catalyst for change across the homelessness sector.
