1d ago

We are looking for people who are great communicators and who know how to have fun, people who are patient, practical and committed to The Action Group’s values of equality, inclusion and opportunity for all

No experience or formal qualifications are necessary as training is provided, but some experience of an educational or care setting would be an advantage.

Our youth groups are for children and young adults with additional support needs to help them lead fulfilling, included lives through having fun, being an active part of the community and experiencing new things.

The role may involve outdoor or indoor sports, arts and crafts and organising events and transport. You must have an understanding and interest in young people and their needs and an enthusiastic and positive approach to working with them.

We also support younger adults individually as they take steps towards greater independence, such as living in their own tenancies for the first time.

We support our service users in pursuing their goals, and also with practical things such as taking care of themselves and their homes.

We tailor the support we provide according to the service user’s needs, so the job can include accompanying service users on outings or going shopping and also lending a hand with keeping track of money, medication and schedules.

You may also work with families to support service users to have fun and take part in activities. You need to be energetic, creative and have great attention to detail.
