Young Carers’ Participatory Research Facilitator

Funded until March 2021 £20,935 (Pro rata)

15 hour post

This is an exciting new development in the Young Carers' Project. The post holder will play a key role within the Young Carers’ Project coordinating brand new Expert by Experience groups. The groups will be made up of young carers aged 10-20 who have experience of a specific relevant issue in their lives. The role of the groups will be to review the services the Young Carers’ Project offer to people in their situation and conduct research into how reach and impact can be improved. The successful candidate must have:

· A thorough understanding of the unique needs of young carers

· A good understanding of and keen interest in children’s rights and young people’s participation

· Experience of working on child led projects and a respect for the views that children hold and the unique contribution that they make to society

· The creativity and resourcefulness to support young people to engage enthusiastically in serious topics and recognise that they are capable of influencing decision making

· The ability to manage expectations well and support young people to work within a realistic framework

· Initiative and motivation to drive and deliver a new project

Closing date: Monday 19th August 12pm
