Sussex Prisoners’ Families are looking for someone with experience of Family Support or Youth Work to reach out and engage children, young people and families with a family member in the criminal justice system, to provide emotional support and practical advice through individual 1-2-1 support, group work and telephone support.

This is an exciting opportunity requiring a high level of initiative and drive, reaching out to engage communities across a wide geographic area. They are looking for people to join the small, dedicated and energetic team who will bring experience of supporting children, young people and families and of organising volunteer recruitment, training and policy.
