Youth Worker (Queen Elizabeth & Heartland Hospitals)

c. £20,700 – 24,700

Redthread works with vulnerable young people in crisis. Whether they have been the victim of a stabbing, are seeking support for anxiety, have suffered a sexual assault, or want to find a new home beyond the reach of a gang, we support them to overcome the challenges they face through our dynamic youth work programmes. Redthread is well established within London’s Major Trauma Network hospitals, and we’re excited to be launching our first Birmingham service at the Queen Elizabeth and Heartland hospitals in July 2018.

We are looking for an exceptional youth worker who is keen to learn, with proven ability to work with high risk, vulnerable young people, and the capacity to form effective working relationships with a wide range of partners and agencies. Our work was recently featured on BBC News which gives a taster of what we do. Click here to see the video.
