We are recruiting a full time Project Worker to work within our intensive supported housing projects that provide housing to Older Looked After Children aged 16 - 18 years old, with support needs. 

The role will include key-working individuals, as well as engaging the young people who live within the project and supporting them to develop socially, personally and spiritually in order that they may grow in confidence and independence.
