We are recruiting now for a new Family Support worker to join our growing team. The key purpose of this role is to plan and deliver bespoke programmes of high quality, family-focused activities to support families affected by childhood cancers across Cheshire and North West England.

The activities we deliver include peer support, one to one activity sessions, play based activities, parenting support and opportunities to engage in large family-based events in a safe and nurturing environment. The overall aim of this work is to improve the emotional and mental health of individual members of families. This will include supporting the child on treatment, siblings, parents/carers, grandparents and friends of the family.

Our family support workers are the first point of contact for our families, so you will maintain your own case load, keeping in regular contact with families via phone, email and face to face visits. This role will be hugely rewarding but also emotionally demanding. We offer a full induction programme, regular staff supervision, flexible working, and training opportunities.
