Job description

Da'aro Youth Project is looking for an experienced caseworker to join our small team based in Streatham Hill. We are interested in recruiting a part-time Youth Caseworker working 2 or 3 days a week.

We are a small community-led organisation supporting young refugees from the Horn of Africa.

Da'aro Youth Project was established in 2018 by members of the Eritrean community in London. Eritreans, Ethiopians and Sudanese are some of the largest nationality groups of unaccompanied minors to arrive in the UK in recent years. Asylum-seeking children and young adults arrive here after traumatic journeys through the Sahara Desert, Libya, the Mediterranean Sea and after crossing borders in Europe, such as in Calais. Once here, young people often struggle to adapt to new lives separated from their families, and find that navigating the complex asylum and social care systems can be stressful and traumatic. We aim to promote the wellbeing of these migrant young people living in the UK, through direct support, through building bridges in the Eritrean community and through advocating for changes to unfair and discriminatory systems which undermine their wellbeing.

We want newly arrived asylum-seeking young people to feel at home and to know they have someone to turn to in a crisis.

Towards this aim we run a weekly youth club – Injera Club – and provide advice, support and advocacy through our casework service for young people in need. 

Through trauma-informed, intensive casework we identify the needs of young people, advocate for their interests within the care and asylum system, and connect young people with the services, opportunities and support they need to reach their goals. 

The Youth Caseworker role will:

Work alongside young refugees, asylum seekers and other young migrants who are at risk or in crisis to ensure that they can access their statutory rights and make progress in their personal, social and educational development so that they can achieve their full potential.
Provide holistic casework, advice and practical support to young people aged 14 to 21 years, working closely with statutory and voluntary organisations to ensure that the immediate and longer -term needs of young people are met.
To encourage the active and meaningful participation of young people in all aspects of Da’aro Youth Project’s youth service delivery.
You'll need to have relevant experience and the energy and determination required to work positively with young migrants who are at risk or in crisis along with the ability to manage a complex caseload and the desire to work as a member of a small team.

Preference will be given to those applicants who have previous experience in casework with children, young adults, and refugees and asylum-seekers – and those applicants with refugee language skills (Tigrinya or/and Amharic).

Closing date for Applications is 23.59 on Sunday 8th August 2021.

Interviews will take place during the following week or so.

To apply, please complete the attached application form and return it to us via our website (see link above).

Please indicate on your application which days you are available to work.
