For 85 years, Coram’s Fields has provided pioneering services for young people from birth through to early adulthood, today these services continue to provide invaluable support to the local community. Our Youth Programme supports young people aged 9 to 19, providing a safe space with a wide range of engaging activities, whilst also ensuring critical development opportunities for all young people, both in a practical context and in terms of their wider personal and social development.


Over the last ten years, we’ve established ourselves as one of the leading providers of children and young people’s activities in Camden, engaging over 350+ young people per year through our Youth Centre. We pride ourselves on working with those in most need of support and have excellent relationships with local schools and statutory services.


For the past three years we have been the lead charity partner on a partnership project with Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust and London Borough of Camden, working with young men at risk of violent crime and showing signs of poor mental health. A fundamental part of this role will include working alongside Clinical Psychologists and Mental Health Workers to grow our targeted offer for young men and increase the reach and impact of this project, that sits alongside of our generic youth activities. 


Fundamental to your success in the role will be an unrivalled commitment to the lives of children and young people, supported by an in depth understanding of the multiple challenges that they face, and in particular, the challenges facing young men at risk of school exclusion and/or offending. Even more crucial, will be your ability to turn this commitment and understanding into high impact services that produce tangible outcomes for those young people that we support.


You’ll be an inspirational leader, bringing a creative flair to your work with young people, harnessing the skills of those around you to deliver a truly exceptional offer.
