Are you a compassionate, engaging and open-minded individual looking to make a difference to the lives of young disadvantaged people? If so, join St Giles Trust as a Volunteer Support Worker working on our SOS+ project, where you will provide targeted support to children and young people across the Norfolk community.

About St Giles Trust and the SOS+ Project

An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need. Central to our ethos is our belief that people with first-hand experience of successfully overcoming issues such as an offending background, homelessness, addictions and gang involvement, hold the key to positive change in others.

The SOS+ educational work will be centred on delivery to cohorts of young people, teachers and parents, varying from small sessions of up to 10 young people, to assemblies of up to 300 young people at a time.

The SOS+ element will include:

  • Delivering SOS+ sessions to small and large groups of young people in schools, YOTs and other settings
  • Supporting the SOS+ wider team to develop sessions and disseminate information to professionals
  • Developing and promoting the service
  • Working with SOS+ wider team to ensure all data from sessions delivered is collated and reflected properly in the statistics

What we are looking for:

  • Lived experience of the Criminal Justice System
  • Have some experience in delivering group work sessions or training
  • Excellent communication skills and the confidence to speak to groups
  • A flexible, reliable and proactive approach to your work
  • The ability to travel around the Norfolk

In return, you will be reimbursed for travel, provided with luncheon vouchers, have access to our mentoring programme, advice and counselling service and St Giles Trust’s training and development opportunities.
