We understand that many of the homeless people we support suffer from more than simply a lack of accommo¬dation, and ensure that our staff have the right communication and interpersonal skills to identify the cause and support with a plan to move people into longer term accommodation.

Working across both the supported and social housing sector, we recruit talented social care professionals with experience of working with homeless individuals and those who need support in maintaining their accommodation.

Our consultants are passionate about what they do. Sector experience and in-depth understanding of the sectors we work in as well as their clients is imperative to help us find the right staff for your organisation.
Staff you can rely on
We understand the urgent need for staff in a sector that has a talent shortage. We also understand the need for fully compliant staff. We want to make sure we change the perception around how a professional can add value to clients we support and more importantly the vulnerable people you support in a wide range of services. Our compliant standards are above the industry regulations and training forms an important part of our candidate's onboarding process to ensure we provide you with staff you can rely on.
The personal touch
We believe that the best support comes from making a real connection between the agency, potential candidates and clients and the feeling that all parties are being looked after. Trustworthiness and transparent communication, and a commitment to deliver what they say they can deliver we know is important to you, and so it's important to us.
It’s great that if I need an agency worker, Brook Street Social Care will send, where possible, the same worker that has been before. This ensures consistency for our client group, who are especially vulnerable and need that level of familiarity. I would recommend Brook Street Social Care as the quality of service they provide is excellent.
