SCT

Type: Support service
SCT aims to help people who are facing problems of addiction, homelessness, poverty and social isolation by putting their lives back together through the provision of a range of high-quality support, rehabilitation and training services. SCT’s services include a drop-in centre, an abstinence-based supported hostel, third-stage move-on homes, an education and training centre. Our core objective central to each of these activities is that of "putting lives back together". Currently we run social enterprises in painting and decorating, furniture restoration and coffee shops. SCT is an equal opportunities employer. Spitalfields Crypt Trust is a growing organisation with opportunities for people with good motivational skills and high levels of initiative.

Our Vision To see lives put back together Our Mission To help people who are facing problems of homelessness, addiction, poverty or social isolation, to put their lives back together through the provision of a range of high-quality support, rehabilitation and training services. Our Ethos and Values Since the inception of the Trust, we have sought to base our work and relationships on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. His life was characterised by love – a love which was honest and challenging, but above all, accepting and forgiving. We expect our staff to demonstrate similar characteristics. We are committed to working with people of any faith or none, and to helping them at their point of immediate need. We aim to provide a variety of pathways to recovery, wholeness and new life, tailored to individual needs and aspirations. In some of these pathways, opportunities to explore the relevance of Christian faith will be available, but these will always be optional. We recognise that the long term effects of homelessness, addiction, poverty, and other forms of social isolation are deeply damaging to the human body, mind and spirit, but we are passionate in our belief that people can experience real and lasting change in their lives. Staff are expected to comply with the highest standards, and will be given opportunities to develop their professional skills. We aim to offer a safe environment and a sense of community for all our service users and staff, and to maintain a culture of openness, respect, trust and accountability. We will never be indifferent to individual rights or needs.
