About this role
We are seeking an experienced youth worker to take the lead in the planning and delivery or our weekly ‘Bridging Project’ session for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) as well as providing additional ‘key work’ support to enhance young peoples access to wider opportunities within the charity as required. The role will also involve liaising with local schools and other appropriate agencies to identify young people who are eligible for the project, meeting them and developing and facilitating action plans with them which enable them to increase their personal and social development opportunities.
Seeds4Success recognises that children and young people live in families and local communities that can be both sources of support and safety but also danger and risk. We believe that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and should be reflected in every aspect of our work with children and young people. The welfare of every child and young person in contact with the charity remains our priority at all times.
