Working at Amber

Amber works with young people in crisis – homeless and unemployed, often with a history of substance misuse, mental health issues, trauma or crime. Offering 24/7 residential support, we aim to inspire, to educate, to motivate and – most importantly – to support the young residents in our care to discover their potential and move forward positively with their lives.

If you are passionate about helping young people to positively turn their lives around and have a non judgemental approach and a ‘can do’ attitude we’d love to hear from you.
