Cumbria Youth Alliance seeks to appoint a Project Worker for 37 hours per week to deliver a number of different programmes supporting young people who are in the care system or who have recently left care and provide them with a holistic support programme to ensure they reach their full potential. All our programmes put young people at the heart of designing their own programmes and we tailor make solutions to build on existing skills and knowledge and use these to overcome barriers to inclusion. The post will work closely with partners in Cumbria County Council and The Share Foundation to ensure the best possible outcomes are achieved for the young people. The post will provide one to one and support for participants (aged 15-17) undertaking the Step Ladder of Achievement online learning modules and providing mentoring to ensure positive outcomes are achieved for the young person. In addition, the post holder will identify and work with young people who have left or are leaving care (16-24) to deliver low level metal health support, identify suitable training opportunities, work trials, work experience, volunteering opportunities and find suitable destinations for the young people. In addition, they will signpost young people to other services to address any additional support needs that the young person may have. This will ensure a holistic support service for the young people.
