Job description

Do you want to make a difference now and for the future?

We have an exciting opportunity to join our team in East Sussex who support Young Carers, aged 5-18 years, who have caring responsibilities for someone in their family due to disability, long-term illness, mental health, or drug or alcohol misuse.

You will manage an existing caseload and new referrals, meeting with families and Young Carers to complete statutory assessments, and providing short-term interventions that support Young Carers to improve their resilience, educational chances and wellbeing. This might be signposting to local services, action planning, one-to-one support, or our workshop programme.

Working closely with schools and Childrens Services, you will make referrals to a range of professionals and community services, ensuring whole family needs are met, and thereby reducing the impact of caring on the Young Carer.

As a CYP Coordinator, you will plan and deliver workshop sessions and activities, providing opportunities for Young Carers to spend time with their peers and recognise that they are not alone.

This is a full-time role delivering the service across Hastings and Rother, and includes working once a week at our Tunbridge Wells office. Own car essential.

You can make the difference and give a Young Carer their childhood back.

We offer our employees:

  • Inclusive values-based environment
  • Competitive remuneration package
  • Workplace pension scheme
  • Generous 31 days annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays
  • Opportunities for hybrid working
  • Benenden Health Care
  • Death in Service Benefit
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Employee Supported Volunteering scheme
  • Development opportunities
  • and more
