Project Co-ordinator x 2 (Worcester & Telford)

Salary: £20,013.70 per annum

Hours: 37 per week

Contract: (Worcester) Permanent   (Telford) Fixed term for 12 months

YSS have been successful in securing funding from the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner to deliver two diversionary projects Divert and ARC. The projects provide 1:1 support to referred 13-24 year olds, in, or at risk of being involved in, the criminal justice system.

There are many existing local services and activities that young adults either do not know about or feel they can’t be involved in for a whole range of reasons. Divert and ARC want to help break down the barriers, real or perceived, that stop young adults engaging in positive activities e.g. poor transport links; subscriptions or equipment costs too high; or people feel that an activity is not accessible for people “like them”.

The main purpose of the role is to support and motivate young adults to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Community integration
  • Reduction in anti-social behaviour/offending/re-offending
  • Engagement in education, training and employment programmes
  • Addressing the harm caused by alcohol
  • Increased confidence and self esteem

The successful applicant will manage a case load of up to 12-24 young adults.  They will accept referrals; undertake relevant assessments and develop tailor made support plans, programmes and activities, in partnership with referring agencies and other stakeholders.

Further details on the ARC/Divert service can be found in the "what we do" section of this website.
