Support Network Project Worker

£25,000 per year pro rata, 21 hours per week, fixed term contract to 31 July 2018
Based in Bethnal Green, London

Do you want to be part of an exciting project helping to improve the lives of families raising a relative’s child, often in very difficult circumstances?

Grandparents Plus is the national charity that champions the role of grandparents and the wider family in children’s lives. We work directly with family and friends (kinship) carers who step in to raise children, keeping them out of care.

We have an exciting new opportunity for a part-time Project Worker to join our Support Network team to help shape the services we offer kinship carers. Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, you will be responsible for running a peer buddying service, working with the team to set up support groups and raise the profile of kinship care and the challenges families face.

We are a high profile organisation run by a friendly team of committed and dynamic staff and volunteers. We offer flexible working and generous annual leave.

Closing date for applications is 10am on Monday 19 October. Interviews are scheduled to be held in our London office on Thursday 22 October.
