Children & Young People Coordinator - Young Carers

 
 
 

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

   

Are you confident, approachable and self-motivated, with 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 be responsible for delivering the service across the Sevenoaks district, 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 Children's 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 respite 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.
