How you’ll make a difference

You will support vulnerable young people and their families that are likely to have complex needs and multiple risk factors.

What does a typical day look like?

You will deliver early intervention and preventative services directly to young people and families.

You will engage young people and families in direct sessions that you will plan. These will be creative, fun and educational. They may be designed to help young people with various issues such as low mood, school exclusion, issues around exploitation, helping to rebuild relationships at home, helping young people socially or to recognise social pressures and build resilient factors to lessen the risks.

You will work alongside a small but fantastic Young People Support team of dedicated, passionate and enthusiastic staff who will help you to support the young people and families you’re working with.
