Thank you for your interest in working with The Separated Child Foundation. We are currently recruiting for the following positions:-

Youth Worker and Youth Support Worker – Bournemouth

We have two exciting opportunities – for a youth worker and a youth support worker – at our new Club Class youth club in Bournemouth.

Club Class in Bournemouth is working in partnership with the International Care Network (ICN). This will be a one-year pilot commencing Wednesday 7th September 2022. The sessions will take place between 4.30pm-7.30pm and will run weekly throughout the year including school holidays.

Youth worker

The youth worker will plan, deliver and facilitate educational and cultural Club Class activities to separated children (16-25 years old). Although you will prepare and deliver the materials, the session will be supported by our youth support worker plus one support worker from ICN and one staff member from Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole LA (BCP).

Youth support worker

The youth support worker will attend sessions to support the youth worker and will also cover sessions when the youth worker is away.

Both roles are offered on a self-employed basis.

Our deadline for applications is 9:00am on Monday 25th July, with interviews to take place during the first two weeks of August.

Volunteers for our packing project

Volunteers play a vital role in the delivery of our packing project, preparing packs that will be distributed to unaccompanied child refugees around the UK. Every two weeks, a team meets at the Big Yellow at Staples Corner to create arrival packs and sleep packs, giving dignity and comfort to separated children after their traumatic experiences. We have seen unprecedented demand for packs over the past year and only expect the need to increase.
