Every childhood is worth fighting for. This is our belief. It drives us. And it’s the reason our Children’s Services team push themselves to transform the lives of children and families – in person, in service centres nationwide, and through the knowledge they share. Join us as our Development Support Officer and make a contribution that means everything.
Together for Childhood is a place based approach to prevention of child abuse and neglect. In partnership with local people, groups and agencies, we will bring people together to develop and test new approaches. Principles at the heart of the project include co-creation through relationships with children and families, local partners and community members; continuous learning and the use of evidence; building on strengths; inclusivity and accessibility; and creating sustainable change through local ownership and capacity.
This is an innovative and ambitious project to bring about change for children across a whole community. A particular focus on early childhood development, and the experience of children growing up in families facing adversity through, poverty, substance misuse, mental health problems and domestic violence are key elements of the partnership.
If you are an innovative leader who will manage our team of community engagement officers and a busy portfolio of community based projects this job would be your ideal role. You will support the team to lead on innovative and evidence based practice that supports communities that enable children to thrive.
Join us and you’ll become part of a team that cares about the work they do and the people they work with. You’ll discover opportunities to grow, along with challenges and a shared purpose that’ll bring the best out in you. And you’ll get to find your own way to make a difference that means more, and that impacts millions of young lives.
