Are you passionate about tackling homelessness?
Do you want to support a well-established charity to extend its impact across the UK?
If the answer is ‘yes’, this may be the voluntary role for you!
Street Support Network connects and supports people and organisations to tackle homelessness at a local level.
Our vision is a citizen-led network, where people with personal insight into homelessness, decision-makers and people with resources co-create and deliver effective solutions.
We connect people to co-produce better solutions, facilitating conversation and co-ordinating action. Everything we do starts by listening to people with personal insight into homelessness and frontline workers. We use research, co-production, human-centred design and creative technology to develop tools and improve systems. Our localised digital platform allows people to ‘Find Help’ and ‘Give Help’ in their area, while enabling them to know who is doing ‘what, where, and when’.
Between 2016 and 2018, we took a central role in Manchester, having supported and hosted the Manchester Homelessness Partnership from the start and now sit on the Partnership Driving Group. From 2018, we extended our reach and have built a connected network across 21 locations across the country, tailoring our approach to provide what's needed in a particular area while also providing a proven framework for effective partnership development.
We pride ourselves in working collaboratively with a range of people and organisations. We are agile and fleet of foot and because of this, we’re able to be adaptable and provide solutions that others can’t.
Our 2020 - 2023 aims are to:
We don't envisage significant growth in terms of our size, as we value the agility being relatively small brings.
