Changing Lives is a national charity that supports over 17,000 people each year. We are a well-respected, growing organisation dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable people across the UK.
We began as a soup run supporting people who were homeless in the North East over 45 years ago, and are proud to still have our main base and central office in the North East. Since 1970, our services have grown and developed to support people experiencing a wide range of personal challenges, including addiction and recovery programmes, employment guidance, help for people in prison or on probation, and support for people experiencing sexual exploitation or domestic abuse.
We’re looking for committed and compassionate professionals who share our enthusiasm for changing lives.
About the job
This position forms part of the complex needs team working under the Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) remit supporting individuals facing multiple needs and exclusion.
Individuals experience a number of problems at the same time such as homelessness, substance misuse, mental health problems and offending. But they usually also have ineffective contact with the services that should be there to help, and end up living chaotic and expensive lives. Finding shared solutions can be beneficial to everyone involved; yet developing a coordinated approach with local partners can be difficult and this is where the MEAM project steps in to make networks and opportunities work for the needs of the individuals who require support and strive towards system change within York.
