We are looking for a Children and Young People Practitioner to work at our 9-bed residential unit, Yvonne House.

Through ‘lone working’ you will build warm, trusting, and boundaried relationships with young people, providing one-to-one support, advice and guidance and leading on the coordination of other support services.

You’ll work as part of a small and dedicated team, all of whom share the same values of thoughtfulness and commitment to changing the lives of disadvantaged young people.

Do you have...

- Experience of working with young people – eg. mentor, coach, teaching assistant, youth/community work, mental health, volunteering
- A commitment to making a difference to young people in care
- Share our values and a similar commitment to inclusive working
- An understanding of the impact of trauma and secondary trauma
- An ability to understand, recognise and respond appropriately to risk
