ARE you looking for a new challenge? Then Darlington charity, the 700 Club, has several vacancies on offer.

The 700 Club, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, works with the homeless as well as other vulnerable people who have a range of different support needs.

The charity was established when 700 Darlington people came together with gifts of £50 to respond to homelessness in the town.

A quarter of a century on, the 700 Club has gone from strength to strength and is now looking to enhance its team with a range of rewarding, permanent roles – full and part-time – within accommodation-based projects and within the community.

They are looking to hear from people who want to make a difference to people’s lives when they come to work every day.

Services provided by the 700 Club include:

  • Supported accommodation
  • Move-on/Step-down accommodation
  • Emergency accommodation
  • Housing First Project
  • A range of Floating Support services, including a substance misuse
  • Early Intervention Services
  • Street Outreach
  • Working with people begging in the local area.

Since it was founded 25 years ago, the charity has provided more than 400,000 ‘bed nights’
