Our client is looking for someone who is passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people and care leavers under 18, to join their new service, which helps them with the skills to live independently in a home that meets their needs.

Working in partnership with North Staffordshire YMCA and alongside the local authorities, you will be providing dedicated, tailored support to young people with complex needs to help them learn the skills to live independently. As well as life skills, such as budgeting, healthy relationships and being active members of the community, you will help them access accommodation that suits their needs and circumstances.

You will stay with the young person until they are living successfully with their own tenancy and no longer need support. This will involve you identifying and coordinating support that stays with them through their longer-term housing journey regardless of the accommodation offered.

If you’re excited about helping them shape this new service, want to make a difference to young people in their city and are interested in this opportunity with purpose, they’d love to hear from you.
