The Marylebone Project is one of the largest women’s hostels in the UK for women affected by 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.
This is a fantastic opportunity within the Project, giving lots of scope for creativity and development. Within this role you will be required to deliver outstanding service to women, providing involvement opportunities and structures at a Project and wider level.

You will have the opportunity to be part of a service which will really make a difference to women’s lives, and have the privilege to see them grow in confidence and skills.

Have experience of delivering service user involvement programmes, ideally within a supported accommodation context
