Residential Childcare Officer, Ebbw Vale, Emotional Behaviour
Your new company
This organisation supports and nurtures 8 – 19 year olds within a children/young person’s residential service, who have experienced adverse childhood experiences. This means they focus on emotional behaviour disorder support, as well as some young people who may have autism/ADHD tendencies. They fully understand the need for early intervention within a young person’s life to ensure they have the best possible chance at an independent future and the hopes they can go back with their families. Not every day is the same, so adaptability and use of initiative is key within this type of service. The young people also appreciate consistency, so seeing the same, confident, and passionate support workers on a regular basis is a proven factor in how much they improve within themselves. Anything this organisation can do to support their young people, they will, and likeminded support staff play a very important role in this.
