Leicestershire Cares is a vibrant, creative and results orientated charity that has been operating across Leicestershire for fourteen years. Our approach to homelessness work is to identify those in need and through our extensive links with local businesses, community groups and local councils, identify appropriate methodologies and support structures to enable these people to take control of their life. Support to sort out immediate issues, plan for the future and access suitable housing, education/training or work. In short, we seek to “support and Inspire” people.
We have secured funding for a new initiative that will build on this work and seek to extend our ability to work with immigrant and minority communities. So if you are creative and ambitious, really committed to making a change and want to build up a project, we would like to hear from you. You will have experience of working with disadvantaged groups and individuals from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds in an empowering way and will be able to plan, manage, monitor and evaluate your workload. A confident communicator, you will feel at ease networking, working in partnership and promoting the work of the project. You will be a team player who is committed to ongoing learning.
