Ending youth homelessness is a pledge YMCA DownsLink Group and Brighton & Hove City Council is committed to.  To achieve this we recognise that work needs to start early on to try and reduce the risk of homelessness, including education in schools and colleges informing young people about the realities of homelessness at a young age and a range of early information and targeted support for young people at risk of homelessness, before they reach crisis point.

YMCA DownsLink Group, in partnership with Brighton & Hove Housing Options, have secured funding through DCLG Homeless Prevention Trailblazers Fund to recruit a Youth Homelessness Schools and Community Worker to the Youth Advice Centre team in the City Centre.   

We are looking for someone with experience of coordinating homelessness prevention awareness raising workshops to schools, colleges and community groups, working with young people to devise and potentially deliver these sessions.  

You will also have experience of working with young people and an understanding of the relevant legislation and a thorough awareness of safeguarding practices.

For more information please contact Julia Harrison or Eley Malone on 01273 624432

YMCA DownsLink Group is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.
