As a member Passion4Fusion’s Youth Work Team and in partnership with other services and agencies you will support the development of practice, culture, and systems to improve outcomes for children and young people from the Black and Ethnic minority community.

Post holders will undertake, coordinate, and deliver youth work and services through identified venues including outreach, detached work and youth participation.

They will work cooperatively and across the wider early help delivery themes to ensure that service users receive a seamless service.

Post holders will be expected to regularly undertake evening and occasionally weekend work to meet the needs of communities and children and young people

Post holders will be required to take a proactive approach to developing new responses to the changing and emerging needs of young people. They will be required to work in a strengths-based and restorative way with young people and have well developed skills to develop strong relationships with others. At a local level, post holders may be involved in identifying youth programme funding opportunities including through marketing and selling youth work programmes and projects.

Children, young people and their families are safe, healthy and achieve their full potential
