Homelessness isn't just an unavoidable part of life; people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness have rights.

And in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and the impact on jobs and wages, we are anticipating a huge increase in the amount of people who need help to keep a roof over their head.

Crisis, a national homelessness charity has awarded us a grant to employ a new Advocacy Worker to join our team to prevent homelessness.

We are looking for a person who would love to work within our non-judgmental, rights-based approach to tackling homelessness in Buckinghamshire.

We are an award-winning charity serving hundreds of people in our community who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. 

Alongside our work reducing the harm done by homelessness, we provide a range of legal advice and support to help prevent homelessness before it starts.

As part of a team the Advocacy Worker will help:

  • reduce the number of people evicted from their homes,
  • help people who are homeless find and keep a home,
  • defend the rights of those who are homeless or at risk of eviction.

Due to the nature of the role there is an Occupational Requirement in line with the Equality Act 2010 for the post holder to be a Christian.
