SAFE! Project Workers

SAFE! Project Workers are contracted on a freelance basis. All hold professional qualifications in areas such as in social work, teaching, youth work, probation or an equivalent and have a lot of experience of direct work with children and young people. Many work for Oxfordshire County Council for the Early Intervention Hubs, Youth Offending Service or for partner organisations.

Project workers receive both group and individual supervision and training on a regular basis and an enhanced Criminal Record Bureau check is a requirement of the role. SAFE! are committed to supporting Project Workers within their roles and working to best practice standards. Project Workers have a wide range of skills and are matched with new referrals into the project according to their areas of expertise where possible.
