Our aim is to provide families with a short break from their caring role through the provision of high quality child-centred services which provides a positive experience for the young people we work with.
We have a strong reputation for supporting young people with high levels of complex needs, supporting them to grow, learn and maximise their potential. We believe every child has the right to flourish. Our Young People’s Workers play a fundamental role in ensuring that the young people they work with have the best possible experience in working towards their objectives in line with their care plan. Whilst not without its challenges and demands, this is a highly rewarding role, where the work we do has a demonstrable impact on each young person's progress. Using a person centred approach you will provide enabling support ensuring the highest level of physical, personal and emotional care to support children in their daily living and within the local community.
We are looking to recruit two Young People’s Workers, each working 23 hours per week for 42 weeks of the year and 35 hours per week for 10 weeks of the year (school holidays). You will be part of a residential respite rota which will require you to work days, evenings, nights, weekends and public holidays.

A Day in the Life of a Young People’s Worker
Our day usually starts around 7.30am with the morning routine. We support our young people to get ready for their day ahead assisting with all aspects of personal hygiene. We then prepare breakfast and medications for each of our young people and organise the day’s activities. We plan mornings out, considering the health and safety requirements for each activity we undertake. After lunch we prepare an in-house activity. This also allows staff to complete daily paperwork such as weekend logs for our young people, updating care plans and review reports etc. In the evening we cook a healthy dinner considering our knowledge of our young peoples’ likes and dislikes and particularly if they have restricted diets.

Many vulnerable children and young people are unable to be supported sufficiently within their own homes and communities. However, by intervening early with person centred approaches we can support children and young people to remain at home rather than moving into residential care.
We are looking for someone to join our team in Perth, who is passionate about supporting children and young people to secure the best possible outcomes as they live and grow within their communities. Our aim is to ensure that children, young people and families are supported to build on their strengths, assets and interests to develop enduring capacity and resilience. We also aim to support local professional stakeholders and communities to coproduce solutions.
Applicants should be enthusiastic, energetic and committed and, working in a culture based on respect, integrity, innovation and the ability to challenge, you will share our vision that collaborative early intervention and engagement is the best option for children and families who are on the ‘edge of care’. You will bring a fresh and collaborative approach and, in discussion with the manager, be willing to try new approaches to ensure strong and trusting relationships are developed with families and stakeholders. You should be dynamic and creative and be able to deliver flexible, person-centred services to vulnerable children and families in a way which can be playful, warm, accepting, curious, tenacious and empathetic.
You will have experience of direct practice within this field of work, including child/adult protection issues. Experience of working with children with additional support needs would be desirable but is not essential. You will work in a variety of settings including the service base, family homes, schools and community sites and deliver work either individually or with groups of children, young people and parents/carers.
A key part of the service is to be able to provide support whenever it is needed including at weekends, during the evening and on public holidays. There is a need to be adept at managing time, balancing the needs of children and families with the administrative elements of the role.
