The Booth Centre is an innovative, advice and activity-based day centre for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Manchester. People who attend the Centre are centrally involved in the planning, evaluation, and delivery of the service. The Centre is recognised nationally as a beacon of best practice.
The Advice team supports people who may be sleeping rough to move off the streets and for them and other people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to find supported and permanent accommodation or to reconnect to family or friends within the UK or Europe.
The Booth Centre also link people into health and other support service surgeries which run regularly at the Centre. The Booth Centre aim to assist people to build positive social networks and to find a purpose which will take them away from street-based lifestyles and improve their quality of life. The Booth Centre has an open-door café, an Arts Programme, a Sports and Wellbeing Programme and an Employment and Skills Programme which run alongside their Advice and Support Hub.
The Booth Centre are looking to employ an experienced Resettlement Worker for an exciting new project, focussed on the individual, their goals and aspirations, assisting them to establish a more fulfilling lifestyle, whatever that means for them. The Booth Centre are looking for someone who is experienced in working closely with people living with complex issues. The right person for the role will be positive, enthusiastic, reliable, energetic, flexible and proactive. This role will be demanding and requires real commitment and resilience from the person appointed.
Applications from people who can speak an Eastern European language would be welcome, as would people with personal experience of homelessness, but these are not essential requirements. The Booth Centre welcome applications from the whole community.
The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
