Careers at Settle

Settle is a charity that supports young adults as they leave the care system and move into their first home.

We provide intensive 1:1 support addressing practical life skills, sustaining a tenancy and managing emotional wellbeing. Our preventative approach to homelessness helps care-experienced young people to make long-lasting changes and thrive.

We are a fast-growing organisation and 2022/23 was a big year for Settle. We worked with more young people than ever before, developed new services and grew our team size.

Since launching in 2015 we’ve now supported over 500 young people across London and the South East and we’re proud to have been included in Escape the City’s Top 100 social impact organisations 2022, Guardian Public Service Awards finalist in 2019, and Big Issue’s Top 100 Changemakers in 2022.

We work with some brilliant partners; from JP Morgan Chase Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund, to local authorities and housing associations across London. We’re a deeply committed team of 16 supported by a brilliant board of 9 trustees who help us achieve our social mission.
