You know what really makes you come alive? You love seeing people learn to overcome. You are often their cheerleader and at times, their coach and you understand that overcoming takes encouragement, patience and determination.  As a member of this skilled team, you will be trained and empowered to bring support and encouragement to the residents of the Mercy UK Christian residential support programme during nights and weekends. As residents wrestle through their own healing journey and put into practice all they are learning, you will support and signpost them towards healthy choices and ways in which they can strengthen themselves in their relationship with God. As part of the team, you will work on a rota-basis and work towards creating a fun and secure home environment.
