Turning Tides provides emergency and other accommodation, advice and assistance. A rapidly evolving organisation, the charity is central to the delivery of Recovery, Mental Health and Housing services within the Worthing & Adur, Arun and Mid Sussex areas.

The Byron and Manor Road residential projects (10 minutes apart) are a high support response to rough sleeping and emergency accommodation placements. Using a harm minimisation approach within a psychologically informed environment you will work in partnership with residents on a case work basis, the whole staff team, specialist interventions and local agencies to forge personalised pathways out of homelessness into suitable housing.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, creative and resilient who can motivate and inspire people to make positive life changes.

Experience of delivering support to vulnerable people with multiple and complex needs is essential, as is a basic knowledge of alcohol, drugs and issues around addiction and relapse management, mental health and personality disorders and a knowledge of motivational interventions.
