We have a unique opportunity for a group-focused Youth Worker to join our Positive Transitions Team, during an exciting period of growth. The Positive Transitions Service is an established service in schools across East Lothian and Edinburgh, offering an early intervention service to encourage and enable vulnerable children, young people and families, and to support them to feel understood and valued, developing their potential (gaining self-esteem and confidence), and overcoming personal, school and learning challenges. We have recently secured additional funding to fund this post and further development. Further details on the service can be seen here:
