SAFE! is actively seeking freelance contractors to support young people through our services.

SAFE! Sessional Practitioners 
Locations: Opportunities across Thames Valley – home based and outreach 
Payment: Practitioners submit invoices on a monthly basis and are paid at a rate of £25 per hour.  They are liable for all tax and expenses.

We are looking for experienced practitioners to provide support on a freelance basis to young people and parents across the Young Victim Service, the Building Respectful Families Service and the Blueprint Project.   Sessional practitioners are contracted on a freelance basis to provide one-to-one support to young people who have had an experience of victimisation, or where they are affected by Child and Adolescent to Parent Violence and Abuse (CAPVA), or where they are at risk of exploitation or crime.   There are also opportunities to co-facilitate group work across all services.  

To be considered for this opportunity you will have extensive experience of working with young people in a supportive role.  An enthusiastic self-starter with excellent communication skills, you will have experience of multi-agency working and a commitment to high standards of professionalism.  Sessional practitioners are responsible for providing appropriate support to children, young people and parents, designing individual intervention plans based on the young person’s needs and providing support to parents/carers.   Sessions may be delivered remotely (using video conference) or face to face, dependent upon the needs of clients.

Applicants will have a good understanding of confidentiality and safe working practices and be proficient in the maintenance of records in accordance with the Data Protection (GDPR) Act.  In addition, you must be able to demonstrate your active commitment to promoting equal opportunities and diversity. 

SAFE! works across the Thames Valley and we are currently looking for home-based practitioners across the region who would be able to travel to meet young people face-to-face within a 25-mile radius, or to provide remote support online, or a combination of both.     

We are seeking people with a professional qualification in social work, teaching, youth work, probation or equivalent, and extensive experience of working with children and young people.  

The welfare of children is paramount to all that we do in SAFE! and we would expect all successful candidates to demonstrate that they are equally committed to these values. We follow safer recruitment processes to ensure that we adhere to these standards. Contracts will be subject to references and checks made by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) satisfactory to SAFE!
