Due to the Outreach Team expanding, we are looking to recruit an additional Outreach Support Worker to support young people who are Looked-After. You will be supporting young people who are aged 16 years to 18 years old. The Team provides support to young people who are making transitions from family or residential placements or who are already living independently.

The role requires working in partnership with relevant professionals and agencies, to ensure good outcomes and life chances for young people in Worcestershire. You will be required to assess, plan and review the needs of young people in order to ensure that their needs are accurately assessed and that support is in place to meet their current and future needs.

Within the role it is essential that you have experience of working with young people and the ability to develop positive relationships.
