For 23 years, Railway Children has been fighting for vulnerable children living alone and at risk on the streets, where they suffer abuse and exploitation. They run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because they’ve nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to. Every day we fight to change their story.
Railway Children is now the largest charity in the UK supporting vulnerable children using transport networks. We now have 3 new roles that will work in our newly established project in and around Euston station. Working in partnership with the British Transport Police you will be offering support and advice to young people who are deemed to be vulnerable or at risk using the train network.
As part of a dynamic team delivering our Safeguarding on Transport project you will lead and coordinate a small team of people and play a key role in establishing our new project in London. You will need to develop close working relationships with key agencies and partners including British Transport Police.
You will be an experienced project co-ordinator with a relevant social care/youth work qualification who has determination, passion and flair. As well as a proven track record of supporting vulnerable young people and families, you will have experience of establishing partnerships, and of managing caseloads.
