Redthread works with vulnerable young people in crisis. Whether they have been the victim of a stabbing, are seeking support for anxiety, have suffered a sexual assault, or want to find a new home beyond the reach of a gang, we support them to overcome the challenges they face through our dynamic youth work programmes.

We are launching our Youth Violence Intervention Programme (YVIP) at three new hospitals in London this year with funding from the Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime, this role will be based at University Hospital Lewisham, although home based until further notice due to COVID-19.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who is highly organised, enjoys collecting and reporting on data, and has the ability to form effective working relationships with a wide range of people.
