As a part time Support Worker, you will be working with young people aged 12-25 years old who have experience of self-harm. You will play a key role in providing them with one-to-one support and advocacy both on a one-to-one basis and within a group setting; working with them to develop their emotional skills which will allow them to cope more effectively with the difficulties in their lives. The nature of the work means role that the successful candidate must focus on inclusivity for the young people. The post would suit an experienced support worker, preferably with knowledge of the issues experienced by young people who are trans / non-binary., as we run two ‘Belong’ groups for those aged 12 to 25 who are trans, non-binary or questioning their gender identify.
The successful candidate will have considerable experience in working with young people aged 12-25 and will enjoy the challenge of working with adolescents in difficult circumstances. You will need to be able to work within a non-discriminatory framework, ensuring the services are provided in a qualitative, responsive, and accessible manner. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you will need to be able to engage in remote working, connecting with the young people by phone and video-conferencing.
We are currently anticipating that this role will be for a fixed term of 9 months, subject to funding. This role is supported by All Churches Trust as part of its Hope Beyond thematic programme, as well as The Gwendoline and Margaret Davies Charity.
