Turning Tides mission is to end local homelessness in Worthing, Adur, Littlehampton, Horsham and Mid Sussex. The charity has grown significantly over the last five years to be able to achieve this. In 2018 we acquired accommodation in East Grinstead, opened a 34 bed assessment centre in Worthing and set up an assertive outreach service to rough sleepers across Mid Sussex. We have over 100 staff and 300 volunteers.

The Community Inclusion Worker (CIW) is another exciting new role for the organisation. This has been funded by Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s Rapid Rehousing Programme, in partnership with West Sussex Country Council and the District and Boroughs.

There are two full time positions available but part time applications will be considered:

Community Inclusion Worker – Littlehampton based

Community Inclusion Worker – Horsham based

The CIW will be focusing on tenancy sustainment as well as community inclusion including:

  • Developing life skills
  • Tenancy sustainment
  • Budgeting and financial inclusion
  • Education, training and employment opportunities
  • Connecting to the community
  • Reducing social isolation

The CIW will hold a caseload of individuals who have low to medium needs, with a history, or who are currently homeless, and support them to:

  • Move in to private rented accommodation
  • Move from hostels in to lower support or independent accommodation
  • Weekly or fortnightly support for those in their own accommodation

We are looking for individuals who are dynamic and have experience of working with vulnerable people. You will also have experience of supporting clients and addressing their needs through effective case work management as well as a good knowledge of housing and homelessness issues.

We offer a range of benefits including 25 days annual leave rising annually up to 28 days. We are committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities and have a comprehensive training package offered with this role.
