Children & Young People Coordinator- Young Carers

Up to £24,000

Heathfield, Sussex

Imago

Do you want to make a difference now and for the future?

Are you confident, approachable, self-motivated and have a flexible attitude?

Then join our team supporting Young Carers, aged 5-18 years, who have caring responsibilities for someone in their family due to disability, long-term illness, mental health, or drug or alcohol misuse.

This is a part-time role, and you will deliver the service across Wealden, and be expected to work once a week at our Tunbridge Wells head office, so your own car is essential. You will manage an existing caseload and new referrals, meeting with families and Young Carers to complete statutory assessments, and providing short-term interventions that support Young Carers to improve their resilience, educational chances and wellbeing. This might be signposting to local services, action planning, one-to-one support, or our workshop programme.
Working closely with schools and Childrens Services, you will make referrals to a range of professionals and community services, ensuring whole family needs are met and thereby reducing the impact of caring on the Young Carer.

As a CYP Coordinator, you will plan and deliver workshop sessions and activities, providing opportunities for Young Carers to spend time with their peers and recognise that they are not alone.

You can make the difference and give a Young Carer their childhood back.

We offer our employees:
• Inclusive values-based environment
• Competitive remuneration package
• Workplace pension scheme
• Generous 31 days annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays (pro rata for part-time)
• Opportunities for hybrid working
• Benenden Health Care
• Death in Service Benefit
