This role will support the delivery of The Kite Trust’s Youth Work Programme covering Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and the surrounding areas, between our Youth Work team. You will primarily take responsibility for aspects of our Individual Support Programme, ensuring that young people receive enhanced support where wellbeing or safeguarding concerns have been raised.
The Youth Advocate & Safeguarding Officer provides high quality, holistic advocacy support, amplifying the voice of young people in challenging situations and supporting them to communicate their wishes and feelings. The advocate also provides accurate information, including signposting or referral to specialist support, to enable young people to make informed decisions. The advocate does this by: working in a young person-centred way; being a reliable and boundaried professional; acting from a place of unconditional positive regard, providing pastoral support where needed; and supporting young people to be empowered to advocate for themselves.
Your role will also include assisting with other aspects of the Youth Work Programme as required, including facilitating activities for youth groups and supporting on residential and school holiday activities.
