Project Worker – Byron and Manor Road Hostels at Turning Tides

Turning Tides is a multifunctional, complex needs homelessness organisation that works in Worthing, Adur, Littlehampton, Horsham and Mid Sussex. It has over 100 staff and 300 volunteers. Its mission is to end the need to sleep rough. We believe that everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives.

The Byron and Manor Road residential projects provide high support accommodation for those that are homeless in Worthing. Using a harm minimisation approach within a psychologically informed environment you will work in partnership with residents on a case work basis, the whole staff team, specialist interventions and local agencies to forge personalised pathways out of homelessness into suitable housing.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, creative and resilient who can motivate and inspire people to make positive life changes.

Experience of delivering support to vulnerable people with multiple and complex needs is essential, as is a basic knowledge of substance misuse, relapse prevention and mental health, using strengths based interventions.
