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 2.5 years but has moved on to pastures new.  We are now looking for someone to carry on the great work. We are seeking an experienced youth worker who is 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 in Market Harborough (Thursday evenings). This group provides our young carers with some respite time and the chance to make new friends, while knowing they have supportive youth workers on hand to listen and help them with the issues they face. The Project also organises amazing trips every school holiday for the young carers.

The person we are looking for will ideally be a qualified youth worker (or equivalent) that has experience of working with young people within the age range 11 to 18 years and understands some of the key issues young carers face.
