YOUTH SUPPORT WORKER (Health & Justice Project)
35 hours per week – Salary £22,401 – £23,111
Cornerhouse (Yorkshire) are looking to appoint a passionate individual to join our team and work in partnership with The Warren to deliver a programme of support to young people at risk of entering the criminal justice system.
Our focus is to build a trusting relationship with the young people by treating them with non-judgemental positive regard. This is based on the professional understanding that a lack of power and control is a contributing factor to the abusive or exploitative context of their lives and therefore believe in a person-centred approach that enables young people to have control and autonomy over this phase of the model.
The partnership will identify those young people who are at risk of /being exploited, those who may be involved in county lines, young people who are frequently missing, looked after children, young people who identify as neuro-diverse, and those at risk of becoming perpetrators of domestic abuse or peer-to-peer exploitation. These areas will be identified by the partnership through intelligence gained from the Police, VEMT (Vulnerable, Exploitation, and Missing Team), MACE meetings, Youth Justice Service and VCS.
This role is to provide one-to-one and small group support; build trusted relationships; using a trauma informed approach; and provide intensive support to young people aged 11-19 years through 1-1 and activity based support.
The post holder will be required to ensure the project provides a safe, inclusive and positive environment and take a role in constantly evaluating and improving the offer to young people.
Delivery may include some evening and weekend work.
