Job description: Working with a large charitable organisation, and in partnership with Lincolnshire Leaving Care Service, we are looking for a Project Worker to work in partnership with young people as they leave care and move onto adult life. The position is for an initial 3 months ongoing with rates of pay of £10 per hour.

Commissioned in 2007 by Lincolnshire County Council to deliver leaving care services to all young people who have been looked after by Lincolnshire County Council.

Objectives of Service
To work in partnership with young people as they leave care and move onto adult life.

The Leaving Care Worker role requires you:

To give practical support, advice information and guidance to young people 17 to 25.

To coordinate services via Pathway Planning to help young people access the services they need to move from care to adult life.

To help young people have access to Suitable Housing and Employment Education and Training opportunities.

To work in partnership with colleagues from Children's Services and other appropriate agencies.

Initial Specific Responsibilities

- You will be the allocated personal advisor for a group of care leavers, some of whom face complex difficulties.

- You will be expected to travel in and out of county so you need a full driving licence and daily use of a car.

- Some evening work is inevitable. Occasional weekend work may be required too.

- You will be line managed by experienced Team Managers who are HCPC registered social workers.
