Job Information

The Edge of Care Team safely helps young people at risk of entering care to stay with their families. We are training every member of every team to use our evidence-based, crisis intervention model and help families make significant, positive changes. Teams will provide intensive support to young people aged 11 – 18 and their families, usually over a period of 4 – 12 weeks.

 

The work builds on a family’s strengths and introduces coping strategies. It mixes practical support with strong challenge, to address complex and enduring needs. Team members engage young people and their families to defuse crises within the home. They assess problems, develop measurable goals and help the whole family acquire the skills necessary to achieve them.

 

Cases will span a wide range of issues including family conflict, absence from home, sexual exploitation and substance abuse. Working closely with other agencies and local services, you will be on the frontline of a new approach that improves behaviours, relationships, confidence, aspiration, employability, living conditions and mental and physical health.

 

As a Project Worker, you will take on a portfolio of cases, working directly with young people and families in their homes. Providing a flexible crisis response service with safeguarding at its heart, you’ll complete thorough assessments and develop strong skills in delivering intensive intervention.
