Spitalfields Crypt Trust (SCT) is an East London charity embedded in the local community, providing practical help, support and training to people affected by homelessness and addiction. We are passionate about the people and communities we support and embrace creative, innovative and inclusive ways of working that build on our collective strengths. We provide a Recovery Hub (including an abstinence-based residential recovery facility, an addictions counselling programme and a Training & Development Programme), supported houses, a Housing First service, community supports, charity shops and two social enterprises supporting people in recovery from addictions to rebuild their lives. Our integrative approach is based on the concept of ‘Recovery Capital’, a whole-person approach taking into account physical, cultural, social, human and spiritual factors and assets.
SCT is committed to social justice and resolutely opposed to discrimination in society. We are committed to providing services, employment and volunteer opportunities on a fair and equitable basis, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion [please see Person Specification below], life-style, gender, sexuality, physical/mental disability, offending background or any other factor. No person requiring services from or applying to SCT for either voluntary or paid employment, will be treated less favourably than any other person on any grounds.
In employment we actively seek to recruit people with a good combination of talent, skills and potential, promoting equality for all, and we welcome applications from a wide range of candidates. We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications, experience and commitment to the values and purposes of the organisation.
