The Bridge Young Carers service provides support to young carers and their families. We aim to ensure that young carers are protected from inappropriate caring and have the support they need to make healthy choices and have the best start in life.

We are looking for a Young Carers Practitioner who will ensure that both children and parents receive integrated, coordinated, multi-agency and solution focused support.

You will need enthusiasm, a creative approach to your work and an ability to engage positively with a wide range of people. A sound knowledge of child development, safeguarding, and the assessment process is essential as is sharing our commitment to co-production. Preferably you will have experience in lead professional roles.

You must have access to a vehicle for business purposes and be able to travel frequently, sometimes at short notice, across the County Durham area.

We are forward looking, ambitious and with a commitment to continuous improvement. We are a people focused, can-do organization that strives for excellence in all we do and operates with mutual respect. If you share these values and behaviours and have the necessary skills then we look forward to hearing from you.

Appointments are subject to Family Action receiving an enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service that we consider acceptable.
