The Marylebone Project is one of the UK’s largest providers of services for women experiencing homelessness. Those we support are often affected by substance misuse, unemployment, domestic violence and mental health issues. Whatever their story, we aim for the same ending; self-esteem, employment and independent living. We do this by providing shelter, education opportunities, spiritual space and events in a welcoming and secure environment.
We are looking for a fantastic Support Worker to join our team and provide trauma-informed support for women in the next stage of their journey.
