Our Hammersmith and Fulham services are comprised of one high support hostel and two medium support hostels, housing 23 clients who have experiences of mental health concerns and some with additional complex needs; including substance use and offending behaviour.

SHP (Single Homeless Project) is one of London’s leading homelessness prevention charities and a dynamic and growing organisation changing 8,000 lives every year across London - from supporting people in crisis, to helping them take the final steps towards independence and employment.

The primary role of the Project Worker is to enable clients to understand their support needs and how to manage these effectively and will also support clients to develop their living skills, build social networks and access education, training or employment. Project Workers are responsible for completing comprehensive needs and risk assessments with clients and identifying short-term and long term goals and objectives.

Project Workers will need to be resilient, innovative, flexible and creative and have a commitment to working collaboratively and within a recovery framework including the SHP Opportunity and Recovery Programme. There will be an element of housing management work with the expectation that clients manage a successful tenancy before moving on to more independent housing.

You will work on a rota basis completing early, late and mid shifts, including weekends and Bank holidays.
