Detached Youth Worker

* 2 7.5 hours per week per post (can’t be combined)
£10 per hour, evenings only. 3 months fixed term.

BYHP is an award winning charity supporting young people who are homeless, disadvantaged or in crisis with the help they need, when they need it. We run a range of successful programmes: youth work, training, housing advice, alcohol work, as well as a successful social enterprise called BYHP’s On a Roll.

Our Comic Relief programme supports young people with prevention and alcohol reduction programmes, and you would be working as part of a team of 6 delivering various aspects of the programme. We have a dedicated counsellor, a small team who go into schools to do prevention work with groups and assemblies, and finally, the detached team.

The detached team would be responsible for talking to drinkers, and gangs in the town centre, People’s Park and wherever young people congregate, and would work with local police to identify where young people hang out and offer young people support.

At BYHP, we see alcohol issues as a symptom, rather than the problem so work with young people holistically to help them overcome hurdles in their lives.

To be successful for the role you will have:

  • A lot of confidence to approach young people on their territory, and build productive and empowering relationships
  • A good track record of working with young people who are disadvantaged
  • Be an experienced youth worker. For the right people, the hourly rate may be negotiable

Closing Date for applications: 12 noon on Friday 14th June 2013.

Please note, applicants successful appointment will be subject to an enhanced CRB check as well as safer recruitment safeguarding procedures.

Please complete an Application Form and Equal Opportunities Form and return by email to enquiries@byhp.org.uk or to Anna Day, CEO at 2 Chandos Close, Banbury, OX16 4TL.

Nightstop Hosts

Do you like young people and have a spare bedroom in your home?

If so BYHP could have the opportunity you are looking for. BYHP is seeking Nightstop hosts to join our existing scheme. All we ask is that you provide a hot evening meal, a bed, breakfast and use of your household facilities. Although this is a voluntary role, payment is made to cover expenses.

This is a very rewarding position and very much appreciated by vulnerable young people who have nowhere to turn to. In the last year approximately 30 young people have been provided with emergency overnight accommodation, through this scheme.

Comments from young people who have recently used the scheme:-

"It was an amazing experience. I couldn't have asked to stay with friendlier people."

"Well fed, warm bed, shower, kind host, made to feel welcome…."

"My Carers during my Nightstop stay were wonderful. I was under no pressure to socialise, made me feel very welcome and had a warm, safe place to stay. No complaints just a thank you!"

For further information please contact Jane Smith, 01295 259442 or email.
