We are seeking an experienced social worker to work with and advocate for unaccompanied children. This will be a critical role over the next 12 months as children continue to be affected by the recent and proposed changes to practice and legislation and accommodated outside of child welfare legislation. The role will require travel across sites and working with partners on the South East coast, based some of the time at The Hummingbird Project in Brighton.
The role requires direct work with young people ensuring sound assessments of their needs and risks to them as well as advocating with and for their rights and entitlements, as well as contributing to systemic change with young people’s voices and participation at heart.
This is a great opportunity for someone who is grounded in strengths based, trauma and culturally informed practice and innovative child rights approaches, passionate about improving the life chances of some of the most marginalised young people and being at the cutting edge of the practical defence of children’s rights.
