Connection Support's values of "empowerment, collaboration, compassion and personalisation" drives its whole approach. It’s about how colleagues work together, support clients, and collaborate with partners to achieve the best possible outcomes for all.

The charity’s mission is solving homelessness and achieving independence for people and families who are facing complex life challenges; empowering them to change their lives and build resilience for the future.

Starting from a small team in Oxford in 1995, it now has just under 200 employees working across six sites in Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes, and Buckinghamshire.

Connection Support provides a variety of specialist support services in areas such as homelessness, housing support, mental health, independent living, preventing isolation, parental mentoring, refugee resettlement and social prescribing.

Support is personalised to the individual, empowering and upskilling them to make a difference to their lives. The organisation's support reaches more than 4,000 people per year and is reinforced by over 100 volunteers.

Connection Support is an inspiring place to work where staff continuously demonstrate unwavering commitment to supporting some of the most vulnerable people in the communities they serve. Culture is important to the charity, with strategic priority placed on areas such as wellbeing, equality, diversity and inclusion, and client involvement.

The organisation offers 30 days' holiday a year, part-time working (where appropriate), family-friendly policies, employee benefits and a pension. It prides itself on being a great charity to work for.
