People may not realise they have the skills to become a Child and Youth Care Worker. The sessional role is suitable for those with life experience. Those with the drive to make a positive difference in a child’s life and an ambition to help young people feel seen and listened to.

Through a strong friendship I have built with a quiet, introverted young person, I have since encouraged them to enjoy swimming, exercise in the outdoor football pitches and get involved in the regular cook nights.
