You will be working with our partner churches – each house is partnered with a local church – to train, equip, encourage for their role in mentoring, befriending and giving practical support to tenants.

As an Empowerment Worker you will also be supporting our tenants who have been homeless. Tenants may either be singles or families with support needs and you would empower them towards a fulfilled life.

You will need to be able to work with tenants with support needs, including poor mental health, past offending, and drug and alcohol dependency issues. We value good listening skills. The ability to work in a flexible team and learn new skills is important as we foster working within a strong supportive team.
