Are you looking for an exciting new challenge to work within a charity that provides support to young people?

The Benjamin Foundation was founded in 1994 helps around 2,000 people per year through difficult times by providing them with hope, opportunity, stability and independence. We are expanding our service provision in Suffolk, centring on Stowmarket & Ipswich and are seeking to recruit a number of new colleagues to support this exciting project. The Supervised service is semi-independent supported accommodation (predominantly 16 and 18 year olds) assessed as having high and specialist needs. The overall aim of the service is to provide safe and suitable accommodation and support for young people leaving care in Suffolk and to prepare them for independence.

The Benjamin Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. An enhanced DBS check will be required for successful applicants.

The Benjamin Foundation embeds the Nurtured Heart Approach ® which creates strong and improved relationships by focusing on positive behaviour rather than energising negativity, providing clear rules and consequences, creating an environment in which people thrive.
