Room to Heal is a human rights charity and therapeutic community based in London.

We offer a range of activities including: therapeutic support groups, casework, gardening, cooking and social gatherings, and therapeutic retreats.
At the heart of our work lies the cultivation of community, through which our members can restore meaningful relationships, overcome the legacy of their traumatic experiences and integrate into the UK. Our community is currently made up of over 100 members from over 30 countries: including former political prisoners; people who have been persecuted on account of their sexuality or religious belief; and those who have escaped trafficking.
Room to Heal is staffed by a team of committed individuals, who work hard but also recognise that a friendly, nurturing environment is crucial for all of our well-being. By joining Room to Heal you would also become a part of a small, close-knit, multi-cultural and inspiring community and be able to see first-hand the positive changes that your work enables in the lives of torture survivors.

You will work closely with one of our caseworkers who you will be job sharing with, and you will also collaborate with another caseworker and casework volunteers, and a small team of therapists. This role also includes supporting community activities during the week.
