Redcar & Cleveland
This is an exciting time in Redcar & Cleveland where we are pleased to be part of the No Wrong Door – Strengthening Families Protecting Children programme; a pioneering way of providing support to young people who are in our care, or on the edge of care.
No Wrong Door, devised by North Yorkshire County Council has already radically improved the life chances of troubled young people elsewhere, many of whom experienced long-term neglect and trauma throughout their childhoods and were likely to have needed to be taken into the care of the local authority without this intervention.
The success of No Wrong Door is built on a multi-agency approach to support. Each young person has a key worker who sticks with them through thick and thin, supporting them to access the right services at the right time and in the right place to meet their individual needs. It is a tough love approach for those who have had a lifetime of experiencing rejection and failure.
We are immensely proud that No Wrong Door is now coming to Redcar and Cleveland after our successful bid to the Department for Education to enable us to work with North Yorkshire to adopt the model locally. We are currently working towards a launch of the programme in August this year.
We are now recruiting for a pool of casual Hub Residential & Edge of Care Officers to support the team as required.
These posts support the Portfolio Leads to proactively provide the support and interventions young people need so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes in life.
This is a challenging position that will be suited to a flexible, resilient and positive applicant. You will work with a range of young people receiving support from NWD, providing casual support to the team as required within a 24/7 rota. These roles provide the stability upon which to help young people develop problem solving and life skills and so improve their outcomes. You will work closely with young people to support them and their families using a range of tools and interventions. This role is critical to building relationships and trust with the most vulnerable and complex young people in Redcar & Cleveland through some of their most challenging points in their lives.
You will be based at the hub on the outskirts of Redcar, in a beautifully refurbished former care home that offers outstanding facilities for the multi-agency team who will be based there to support some of our most vulnerable young people.
