This is an exciting opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness which some females experience. Support Workers will support the service manager and coordinator to ensure the provision of high standards within Catherine House our new innovative 10-unit therapeutic housing scheme for women.

The women staying at the scheme will have a variety of complex and multiple needs resulting in significant histories of trauma, repetitive periods of homelessness and will have struggled to engage with other support services.  Catherine House aims to help women out of homelessness using a therapeutic support model, designed to enable women to gain the skills and confidence needed to take the next steps to living independently.
