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 currently manage 236 bed spaces in our emergency and short-term accommodation where there is a focus on recovery from alcohol and illicit substances. Recovery can look and feel very different to each and every one of us. But we also know that if we provide the right support, at the right time that recovery is possible for everyone. Tis role will be responsible for helping and inspiring residents to maintain their tenancy and independence in the community by encouraging residents to lead their own recovery. This role involves working together with residents to co-produce personalised support plans designed to address their specific needs and achieve their goals and aspirations.
