At VASL, we have an exciting opportunity for someone to manage our Young Carers project. Our previous Young Carers Manager worked with our group for over six years and has now moved on to pastures new.  We are now looking for someone to carry on the great work. We are looking for someone who is friendly, creative and passionate about working with young people

VASL is a local charity focused on improving lives. Our well-loved and established young carers project, mainly funded by Children in Need, runs a fortnightly youth group (Thursday evenings). This provides our members with a chance to let off steam and make friends, while knowing they have a supportive network of adults who are available to listen and talk through issues they are facing.

The group also arranges and accompanies our members on organised trips like outdoor adventures and excursions.

The person we are looking for will ideally be a qualified youth worker (or equivalent) that has experience of working with a range of young people within the age range 11 to 17 years and understands some of the key issues’ young carers face.
