HARP is Southend-on-Sea’s leading homelessness charity. On average we help around 1,000 local people every year to overcome or avoid homelessness. In addition to providing essential short-term emergency shelter, food, clothing and washing facilities, we work to identify the root causes of homelessness, creating tailored support for each person’s circumstances. We achieve success by providing structure, purpose and training opportunities, and by providing longer-term supported housing, empowering people to take steps to leave homelessness behind and ultimately live independently in the community.
We are looking to recruit to our busy day centre in the centre of the town, which is often the first port of call for anyone homeless or at risk of homelessness. Our Assessment Team offer the following services:
Access to outreach support and emergency accommodation
Private Rented Sector approved partners
Access to homeless healthcare
Free food, shower and washing facilities
Clean clothing and laundry facilities
Signposting to other agencies
Referral to statutory services
Support with submissions for Homeless Applications, Housing Applications, Universal Credit including brokerage for delays and sanctions
Support and advice to entrenched rough sleepers to find a new way to live away from the streets.
Support for people with complex and multiple needs, including substance misuse and mental health problems.
