Are you passionate about supporting people to feel connected, to get involved and to have their say, do you have lived experience of homelessness, do you enjoy meeting new people and being creative? If so our new Community Ambassador role might be just what you are looking for.

We are looking for people to join our team and use their own lived experience of homelessness to inform, support and promote the project across a range of activities including; developing meaningful activities, attending partnership meetings, having a say in citywide ‘conversations’, and in the development of educational resources.

Most importantly we are looking for people who are comfortable talking to new people and who are able to listen to and relate to our visitors and the organisations that we work with. We are looking for people who will bring a friendly and positive approach, and who can use their lived experiences to build connections and develop meaningful activities for people experiencing homelessness.
