About us

Changing Lives is a national charity that supports over 17,000 people each year. We are a well-respected, growing organisation dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable people across the UK.

We began as a soup run supporting people who were homeless in the North East over 45 years ago, and are proud to still have our main base and central office in the North East. Since 1970, our services have grown and developed to support people experiencing a wide range of personal challenges, including addiction and recovery programmes, employment guidance, help for people in prison or on probation, and support for people experiencing sexual exploitation or domestic abuse.

We’re looking for committed and compassionate professionals who share our enthusiasm for changing lives.

About the job

This is a new service as part of a region wide bid. The service will deliver homeless response in Northumberland and North Tyneside. The service is completely new to Northumberland, with no previous homeless outreach being delivered and the service ran as a pilot in North Tyneside 3 years ago. Therefore, this is a new and exciting service for a team of enthusiastic, skilled workers to develop. The service will influence local policies, strategy and pathways in each of the local authorities as well as having an influence on the region as a whole and feeding into the national homelessness agenda.
