Barnardo's work in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council to deliver its Leaving Care Service for young people aged 16-25.
We have recently been inspected by Ofsted and have achieved an ‘Outstanding' grade for the service we provide.
Following a recent re-commissioning of the service we are looking to recruit a Project Worker to work across the region with our teams based in Lincoln, Louth, Peterborough and Sleaford. We also have some Care Leavers based out of County and their voice is equally as important in relation to service development and delivery.
Initial Specific Responsibilities
Within Lincolnshire the Signs of Safety model is used across County as an assessment tool and we are looking for a champion to help embed this across the Leaving Care Service.
Participation is key within out service and the successful candidate will build on the work we have already started to increase the participation offer we currently have in place for young people. We are looking for an imaginative, creative worker who has a passion to ensure young people's voices are heard.
We have an established quality assurance framework within the service and we expect the new post holder to co-ordinate our audit's across service building on the work that's already in place.
