We are delighted to be working on behalf of a voluntarily organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families. Their volunteers offer regular, informal and confidential support to families under stress in their own homes helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown.

After recently receiving grant funding from the Big Lottery Fund for an exciting new project 'Home Wasn't Built in a Day', which will focus on providing practical support for families alongside the assistance, friendship and advice we already offer, through closely coordinated partnership working.

As the focus of this project is to provide practical support for families alongside the assistance, friendship and advice they already offer our client requires a Practical Task Coordinator in Corby to work closely with organisations, and build on their vision to make a significant difference to families in Corby and the way in which partner agencies work together.

  • Produce reports to a deadline and monitor and evaluate every area of the project; • create new course material to meet the needs of the project and volunteers;
  • Assess and follow up referrals received from agencies to respond effectively to the wishes of children and their families
  • Arrange and attend multi-agency meetings (eg. EHA, Child in Need)
  • Work under own initiative and as part of a team
