About the role

Young Roots’ Casework Service provides one-to-one intensive and open-ended support, advice and advocacy to young refugees and asylum seekers. Launched in 2016, the service has quadrupled in response to both volume and complexity of need. You will be part of a growing team of skilled and committed Caseworkers, supporting hundreds of young refugees each year.

As Senior Caseworker, you will be responsible for your own caseload of young people in Brent, some of whom will be part of our contingency accommodation project in Wembley, providing holistic and trauma-informed support; making referrals for mental health support and legal advice as well as to other relevant services; monitoring and reporting progress against milestones and outcomes; and responding to safeguarding concerns.

About you

We would like to hear from you if you have the following:

  • Experience of providing casework support to young refugees and asylum seekers aged 11-25 years  
  • Working knowledge of the UK asylum and social care systems for young refugees and asylum seekers, including Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children and care-leavers  
  • Understanding of the challenges experienced by young refugees and asylum seekers in London  
  • Working knowledge of child protection issues and safeguarding processes  
  • Ability to empathise, communicate and engage effectively with young people in distress  
  • Ability to handle complex, sensitive and confidential information appropriately

Young Roots offers a competitive package, with a generous 28-day annual leave entitlement, flexible working and 5% employer pension contribution (3% employee contribution)

Founded in 2004, Young Roots works with young refugees and asylum seekers aged 11-25, in London, to improve their wellbeing and fulfil their potential. We provide direct services for young people, including youth and sporting activities, one-to-one intensive Casework support, access to therapeutic and legal support, English-language learning and youth leadership. We run parallel services in Croydon and Brent supporting hundreds of young refugees and asylum seekers each year, from 40+ countries, many of whom are unaccompanied.

We have an ambitious strategic plan 2021-2024, framed by our values, which includes our aim to draw on our deep understanding of the challenges young refugees and asylum seekers face to advocate for better systems and policies, both locally and nationally, with and for the young people we support and the wider community of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.

Young Roots is committed to its responsibilities under safeguarding and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to a satisfactory DBS disclosure, as well as a need for full employment history and up to date employment references.
