We believe that every individual has worth and deserves a fresh start, no matter what their situation.

Wycombe Homeless Connection (WHC) is an award-winning registered charity serving around 500 homeless or vulnerably housed adults each year. WHC is looking for two key individuals as we look to expand the area we serve.

WHC is committed to the training and professional development of its staff. A community project of Wycombe churches, WHC serves anyone who comes for help, and does not promote religion. However, due to the nature of these roles and the organisation there is an Occupational Requirement in line with the Equality Act 2010 for the post holders to be Christians. The WHC team includes folk from different Christian backgrounds.

For further information on these opportunities, please contact James Everall ([email protected]) by Friday 7th June.
