Outline of the role
Westminster Befriend a Family is looking for a social work consultant to provide us with advice and support on a part-time/on-call basis for six months with the possibility of extension. Reporting to the Director and working with the Service Coordinator, you’ll support us with referrals, provide guidance in assessments and assist with supervision and monitoring of families and young people we work with. Each week we’d like you to work with us in person for four hours (in the office or joining us in visits to families), and provide an additional remote support service for a maximum of three hours a week. We expect that in total you’ll work with us for seven hours a week, occasionally more. Payment will be on an hourly basis (to be negotiated dependent on experience), with seven hours guaranteed a week.
Background to Westminster Befriend a Family
Westminster Befriend a Family has been providing support to vulnerable families in the borough for 30 years. Working with volunteers, we offer mentoring, befriending and peer support networks for isolated families, building independence , breaking cycles of social exclusion and preventing a slide into crisis. Volunteer befrienders visit families weekly, empowering them to overcoming challenging circumstances and offering social and emotional support. ‘Broadening Horizons’, our flagship mentoring programme, supports 13 – 18 year olds, building aspirations, boosting confidence and providing additional support with educational and social challenges. We provide continuity through facilitating peer support sessions, where parents can meet in a safe, inclusive environment.
