We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate Project Worker to join our Youth Homelessness Support Service, funded by Perth and Kinross Council the service aims to support young people to transistion from homelessness into settled accommodation, as well as supporting those in tenancies who may be at risk of eviction and young people who want to return home and maintain relationships with their families. The Project Worker will work with young people aged 16-25 years.

The Project Worker will be a leading member of the team, establishing positive relationships with partner agencies across Perth, working to ensure that youth homelessness rates reduce, and that a young person’s experience of homelessness is rare, brief and non-recurring.
