Do you believe everyone should have a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life?

HARP is a growing Southend-on-Sea based charity working to prevent homelessness and help vulnerable and socially excluded people to transform their lives. Each day our staff and volunteers work with individuals to tackle the underlying causes of homelessness, such as poor mental health or drug and alcohol dependency. From supporting people in crisis to helping them take the final steps towards independence and employment, we make a difference to over 1,000 lives every year.

As a charitable registered provider of short-term social housing operating in Southend-on-Sea, we believe everyone should have a home of their own. At times individuals may require support from HARP and other agencies to maintain a tenancy and avoid a return to homelessness.

Are you a motivated and passionate individual looking to make a real difference in your local community? Are you enthusiastic about helping others less fortunate?  If so, we would love you to join our Bradbury Centre team as a Front of House Worker.
