Programme Coordinator (King's College Hospital)
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.
King’s was the first hospital to have a Youth Violence Intevention Programme (YVIP) service in 2006 which is now every well-established, and we enjoy excellent relationships with our clinical colleagues providing a much needed service to vulnerable young people. Watch this video (https://vimeo.com/286201435) about Redthread from our win at the Charity Awards which gives a taster of what we do.
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who is highly organised, enjoys collecting and reporting on data, and has the ability to form effective working relationships with a wide range of people.
