The Queen Victoria Seamen’s Rest provides accommodation for seafarers, both active and retired, ex-servicemen and other adults in need of accommodation. In addition QVSR is committed to providing first class support to seafarers visiting the Port of London; our Seafarers’ Centres at Tilbury and DP World London Gateway offer a warm welcome, welfare support and a home from home.
This role will primarily work alongside the Project Co-ordinator – Homeless Services to provide support to residents transitioning to independent living by offering ongoing support in order to minimise the risk of returning to homelessness. The post holder will assess needs and put appropriate interventions in place for services users adopting a person-centred approach in the development of support plans.

One of the most exciting elements of QVSR’s 175th Anniversary Celebrations has been the performances by Applecart Arts of four vignettes depicting key periods in QVSR’s history. These vignettes were written and directed by Peter Moreton, Artistic Director at Applecart Art, who also performs in the vignettes.
