Youth Worker - Stockport

node leader
23 July 2022

You will be working with children and young people (10-17) who have been referred by Stockport Youth Justice Service. This will include one to one and group based work.

You will be providing support, encouragement, and supervision to enable children and young people to undertake ‘community reparation’ work. This can include work on; environmental projects, arts based projects, awareness raising campaigns, supporting local charity work etc.

Your primary role will be to provide all required support to enable children and young people to engage safely with these activities and to motivate them to engage and get as much out of the experience as possible.

You will also be encouraged to develop your own ideas for community projects and activities for young people to complete.

So if you want a job that can really make a significant difference to the lives of young people this could be the job for you

Some examples of the projects some that Remedi colleagues have delivered previously:    

  • Supporting young people to create and develop an anti hate crime awareness campaign     
  • Supporting young people to help local food banks      
  • Supporting young people to organise fun events for children in need 
  • Supporting young people with mental health awareness sessions and campaigns
  • Supporting young people with local community clean up campaigns

This is not an exhaustive list and we will work with you to develop new and exciting ideas.

You will be working 25 hours a week on a fully flexible basis to suit the availability of the children and young people and, as a result, can expect some weekend working.

Remedi will provide full training for the role and are looking for someone with passion, empathy and motivation rather than any particular past experience or qualification.
