Versus Arthritis are currently recruiting a dynamic, creative, innovative team players to join their Young People and Families Service in Scotland. The role will be based in Glasgow but will support service delivery across Scotland.

As a Young People & Families Worker you will work with colleagues, partners, healthcare professionals, schools, volunteers, families and most importantly young people to co-plan, deliver and evaluate a high quality, holistic support offer locally and nationally.

Using a community development/youth work approach you’ll put children and young people at the centre of decisions about their journey. Using youth accessible approaches, you will help young people build their confidence, make friends, and achieve their personal goals. This will be achieved by providing one-to-one support, creating peer networks and working with volunteers to co-deliver self-management activities on a variety of topics from sleep management to self-advocacy.

You’ll also co-design an exciting programme of social events, youth voice opportunities, digital content, and residential events. You will act as the bridge between young people, their families and professionals – especially in healthcare settings where you will play a unique role working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams to meet a range of needs in a relatable and youth friendly style as young people learn to live well with their condition. You will support young people during the pivotal transition from paediatric to adult services and life, ensuring it is a time of empowerment and growth.
