Job description

This is a home-based position covering the Kent area, working 28 hours per week.

At Leonard Cheshire we support individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability. Led by people with experience of disability, we are at the heart of local life — opening doors to opportunity, choice and support in communities around the globe.

We have an exciting opportunity for a Can Do Programme Coordinator in the Kent area. ‘Can Do’ is a community-based programme which supports young disabled people aged 16-35 to develop skills, take part in new experiences and build confidence and independence by participating in a variety of social action projects.

This varied role is an exciting challenge for someone keen to work in the charity sector and make a difference. You will build partnerships with Kent-based organisations in order to recruit groups of young people with additional needs. You will plan and deliver projects, working with groups of participants in a person-centred way on social action and community-based projects.  You will work with other Leonard Cheshire programmes and services and will join a national team of home-based workers across the UK. You will report to the Senior Programme Coordinator.

We are looking for candidates who have a good knowledge of the Kent area, are passionate about supporting young people with additional needs and have the motivation to make a difference. You will have experience of working with our target group, organising projects and delivering inclusive activities and events.  Knowledge of teaching, training or youth work is highly compatible with this role. You will be a confident, pro-active communicator who can build effective relationships both internally and externally, create successful new partnerships, promote the work of the programme and create opportunities for our participants.

If you feel you have the capability to network and build partnerships with organisations working in communities across Kent, identify new opportunities and deliver projects with young disabled people aged 16-35, we look forward to hearing from you!Please visit our Facebook page @candoers and see us in action.
