We work hard, we help each other and go out of way to help others and find solutions rather than focusing on problems. We are positive and proactive and, although absolutely focused on our areas of expertise, we work as a team so that BVSC is the best it can be. Above all, everything we do is to strengthen our local Voluntary and Community Sector.
BVSC are initiating a new service which aims to provide prevention and early intervention work for young people, ensuring that they get the help they need and reduce the necessity for higher cost specialist service. The new project will connect 10–17-year-olds to existing voluntary sector services and provide a pathway to raise any concerns, issues and areas of need, specific to Bexley.
The postholder will be responding to the need we have seen as a result of Covid for young people in Bexley, working with local organisations, schools and healthcare professionals to co-ordinate and deliver a programme of support for children and young people, and will contribute to better emotional wellbeing for CYP as well as build capacity within the Community and Voluntary Sector. This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in a project within its early planning stages, and to have a real impact in bringing to life the first Social Prescribing service for Children and Young People in Bexley.

- Keep accurate records and enter relevant data on the monitoring database, ensuring compliance with policies and procedures
- Ensure information and advice regarding wider voluntary sector services, activities and resources is consistent, up-to-date, available on the database
- Keep track of each child and young person's engagement with the project and wider voluntary sector organisations to record outcomes
- Assist in the preparation of reports, monthly e-bulletins, publicity materials and monitoring
- Build strong working relationships with the wider voluntary sector and publicise the service with schools and healthcare professionals

- Undertake any other duties that may reasonably be assigned from time to time including travel throughout the borough to attend events, occasionally on evenings/weekends, and meet with volunteers and organisations.
These are the normal duties which are required of the position; however, we do require that all staff be flexible and may be required to perform other duties to ensure the efficient running of services.
Please note that the base for this role is Crayford Manor House, however the post involves working from various venues across the borough. We observe government guidance on Covid restrictions which may involve working from home on occasions.

We are looking for a strong team-player and self-starter who is able to respond to all enquiries coming into the advice service on the current Advice Officer’s non-working days.
Our Advice Officer, who works 2.5 days a week, will retain overall responsibility for recording enquiries that come in, preparing summaries of enquiries and analysing themes, identifying case studies for training or media work, and answering enquiries 3 days a week. You will respond to advice enquiries on the other two days, working directly with the Programmes Director on any more challenging enquiries that require a response beyond giving individual advice. For example, Birthrights might write directly to a Trust or raise themes from our advice work with the Royal Colleges. You will be an integral part of our team – we have daily short team check-ins at lunchtime each day, and a team meeting every two weeks, and use Slack to communicate throughout the day.
Birthrights is a small but mighty charity, and our reputation will be in your hands. We pride ourselves on our expertise in human rights and how it applies to maternity care, and on our empathetic and supportive service. We provide information, rather than counselling or legal advice, and we refer on to other organisations when enquiries go beyond our core areas of knowledge.
Our advice service has grown from a volunteer-run service to being part of a part-time role, to a role in its own right – and we are now excited to build a team with the capacity to promote and grow the service, and respond flexibility to demand. We may be able to offer more hours in future if this is something you would be interested in.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
