Are you passionate about homelessness and interested in developing a new service?

If so, this new role working to provide homes for those most in need is for you.

About the role

Cyrenians WiSH project is an exciting new partnership with Resonance, a social investment organisation, which is purchasing homes for charity partners to provide to vulnerable women. Domestic Abuse is the biggest cause of women’s homelessness in Scotland and the fund is purchasing 30 homes for Cyrenians to provide to women and children who have had to leave an abusive household.

Working in a small team, you will provide relationship-based support to women who have become homeless due to fleeing domestic abuse. You will assist them to settle in to one of our safe, supported properties. You will work alongside them to manage risk and promote wellbeing while they transition into a new permanent home.

About You

You will be an experienced support worker, and passionate about helping vulnerable people into a better situation. You will be trauma-informed and committed to working with the team to ensure the highest standard of care and support.

Under Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010 only women are eligible to apply.

How we’ll support you

You’ll be working independently with a supportive manager and a range of internal and external colleagues and partnerships. You will have access to wider Cyrenians support, including our learning and development programme, and staff wellbeing services.

About us

At Cyrenians we tackle the causes and consequences of homelessness by taking a values-led and relationships-based approach to delivering our services. You can find out more about our organisation and our impact online.

Our values: Compassion | Respect | Integrity | Innovation
