BS Social Care is working alongside a renowned and respected provider of care and support to children and young people to find a community support worker.
The support worker will work with young people who are leaving the care system to live in the community within their own homes. Working with young people at a crucial point in their lives, this is a highly rewarding role where you will help the young person carve a path in their first steps of independence.
You will work with the young person as they prepare to leave the care system to help make the transition into their own home as seamless as possible. You will direct and signpost the young person to the appropriate services in the community such as health, education and further education and employment services. You will be there to help manage and divert possible crises by drawing up robust care plans and risk management plans.
Your role will be to allow the young person fulfil potential and achieve goals that they set out for themselves as they become independent. It is also to make sure the relevant daily tasks are being complete. Daily life skills are important in this role and being able to strike up a good, trusting working relationship with the young person. Consistency and reliability are a key value to the successful candidate.
