Help make a difference to young people's lives

Karen recently joined NCHA to help make a difference to young people’s lives.

Karen recently joined Branching Out in Retford as a Young Person’s Support Worker. “I am really proud of my job” says Karen. “I’ve been working with young people for over 20 years. It’s rewarding to be able to offer young people the support they need to grow in to responsible adults.

“We are the family they don’t have. These young people yearn for adults who are willing to listen and support them. You don’t need to have the experience I have, but you do require the passion to work with young people who come from challenging backgrounds.

“Everyday really is different! To support our residents I have many roles. From being mum, to cook, therapist to odd job person. This is their last chance of receiving a positive influence before they become fully responsible adults.”

Do you have what it takes to make a difference to these young lives? Could you join Karen and the wider team to deliver great services as a Young Person’s Support Worker? If you have the personal qualities, there’s training for everything else.

At Branching Out, we provide a home with support for young people aged 16-21 who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. We help them to access employment, education and training opportunities. We also help to develop life skills like managing money and accessing services and benefits.

Join us and help make a massive impact in supporting the adults of the future.
