Do you have passion for your work, a commitment to excellence and a desire to support some of the most vulnerable and excluded people in our communities? Could you support us to make positive changes in people’s lives?
Providence Row works with more than a thousand homeless and vulnerably housed people a year in East London, offering an integrated service of crisis support, advice, recovery and learning and training programmes. Our aim is to ensure that people who are so often excluded from mainstream services gain the support and opportunities they need to create a safe, healthy and sustainable life away from the streets. Central to our work are our core values of Compassion, Respect, Inclusiveness, Empowerment and Justice. These inform the content, style and delivery of all our services.
We support clients in addressing their mental health, substance misuse needs and general wellbeing by building a positive relationship with the person, not just focusing on their problems, but by exploring their potential. Providence Row works with people to improve their self-esteem and confidence, helping them rediscover their skills, get back into work and training and build stronger support networks.
