Youth Support Worker

Rutland’s Young People’s Services Team provide activities that help build the local community and meet young people’s needs, especially those who are more vulnerable.

Young People’s Services play a key role in young people's educational and social development.

We offer a range of services and support for children and young people, which include a Mentoring Service, Advocacy Service, Wellbeing Service, targeted short programmes, as well as focused clubs.

Our Youth Engagement Workers plan, organise and oversee community programmes aimed at young people. Working directly with children and young people, helping them to build life skills, develop healthy relationships and make decisions that are right for them.
