Young Persons Support Worker - Hidden Harm

We are seeking a Support Worker to work alongside our Hidden Harm Practitioner to provide advice and support to Young People affected by parental or familial substance misuse.

The job involves taking referrals from the Hidden Harm practitioner for Young People who require respite support to reduce isolation and build positive social support networks.  It will include: delivering a range of group and individual activity sessions, such as arts and crafts, youth clubs and day trips designed to counter the disadvantages this cohort of Young People face; developing resources and implementing workshops to explore and raise awareness of some of the complex issues that Young People face, such as online safety, positive relationships, exploitation, drug and alcohol awareness; refering young people into specialist services where additional needs or risks are identified.

This post is an externally funded project through Children In Need until 31st March 2021 and has key performance outcomes to achieve for the Young People accessing the service.
