Warwickshire Young Carers is here to help improve the lives of Young Carers across Warwickshire by offering free and confidential support.
We work with young carers from the age of 6 upwards and aim to help make a difference to their lives by encouraging them to take time out to relax, take a break and to realise their own dreams.
We don’t have all the answers, but we will try to find them for any Young Carers who come to us for help or support.
Warwickshire Young Carers is an independent local charity that tailors the help, support and advice we offer to the individual needs of each Young Carer.
Do you have what it takes to support young carers across Warwickshire?
We are looking for two experienced, innovative and enthusiastic Project Workers to provide universal and targeted support for Young Carers across Warwickshire. You will have a focus on those aged 8-25, linking them in with activities, workshops and groups. This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a supportive, creative and proactive team, servicing families with complex needs whilst supporting the welfare and safeguarding of young carers. If you're a lateral thinker who can work flexibly and welcomes a challenge, this may be the post for you.
Here at Warwickshire Young Carers, we pride ourselves on the work we do and range of services we offer to support young carers and their families across the county.
You will be required to assess, plan and review the needs of young carers in order to ensure that their needs are understood, and that support is in place to meet their current and future needs.
The post holder will work with a caseload of challenging families to provide comprehensive and pro-active support which promote, strengthen and develop the potential of families enabling them to live successfully in their community. You will help to have their voices heard, provide a break from and reduce inappropriate caring responsibilities and be the support that many are lacking in. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of young carers and their families across Warwickshire, we would love to hear from you!
