Our work with disadvantaged young people is underpinned by a belief in the power of empathy, and trusted, consistent relationships. We are keen to recruit those who can demonstrate they are able to relate to and empathise with young people often deemed by other agencies as ‘harder to reach’.
We especially welcome applications from those who have overcome significant adversity in their lives and are now able to inspire others positively through their journey and progress.
