Children & Young People Co-ordinator - children with disabilities

 

Are you passionate about children reaching their full potential?

  

Are you confident, self-motivated, flexible, and have a ‘can do’ attitude?

  

This is an exciting opportunity to join an established team working with children and young people with mild to moderate disabilities, delivering a programme of after school café-style groups (8-15 years), Saturday Clubs (15-19 years) and school holiday trips.

  

You will join an established team and have responsibility for a dedicated area (Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells), managing an existing caseload and new referrals to the service. You will plan, organise and risk assess group activities that support personal development, and promote independence, community engagement and social activities. We want the young people taking part to have opportunities to try new things, make friends and have fun!

  

As lead staff, you will work with colleagues and volunteers to deliver sessions, supporting the young people to participate, interact and achieve their goals. It’s expected that you will keep excellent records and keep in regular communication with families to build trusted relationships.

  

A key aspect of this role is to raise awareness and promote the service so you will attend events, meet with schools and develop wider networks.

  

Join us and make a difference.
