The Whitechapel Centre’s mission is to prevent and resolve homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty by providing practical, realistic, tailored support so that each person can find a route out of homelessness, maintain a home and achieve their individual potential.

Working closely with Halton Borough Council our aim is to provide targeted rehousing advice and support to enable people who have complex needs or who are rough sleeping, or at risk of rough sleeping, to find their route into the right accommodation.

The successful candidate for this role must be able to demonstrate at least two years’ experience of delivering support and advice services to clients around benefits maximisation, substance misuse, domestic abuse, care and mental health services and have the ability to navigate local homelessness systems and services including private sector solutions in order to secure the most appropriate accommodation for each client.
