Job Description

Do you have experience of planning and delivering involvement, volunteering or research activities and liaising with external agencies, partners and professionals, possibly in a housing or homelessness context? Then join Shelter as an Involvement Coordinator and you could soon be playing an exciting and diverse role within a new project aimed at developing our approach to women's centred services.

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change with individuals, in communities, across society and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

Women are being increasingly and disproportionately impacted by the housing crisis. This has led Shelter to develop a new strategic priority to ensure that all our housing advice services are designed with a clear understanding of how a women's gender affects their housing problems and the kind of support they need as a result. We're spearheading this transformation by developing services in three locations, which are designed by women with lived experience and local partner agencies, and directed at helping homeless and poorly housed women. We have secured National Lottery funding, initially for 6 months, to carry out this work.
