Revoelution offer you an exciting opportunity to play a key role in improving the lives of young people in one of the most challenging urban environments in the UK.
Revoelution is Blackpool’s Big LocalPartnership – a community-led project seeking to inspire and empower people in the Revoe area around Central Drive to make it a better place to live. In all our consultations and conversations with residents, concerns about young people have been a high priority – issues raised include antisocial behaviour, involvement in drugs, low educational attainment, lack of access to higher education, low aspirations and a lack of activities for young people.
This is a great opportunity for an experienced youth worker – a ‘blank canvas’ to plan and deliver activities for young people from often difficult backgrounds in an area with limited youth provision. Revoelution have funded some projects aimed at younger children, but we particularly need someone to focus on teenagers. We need someone with the skills, experience and personality to engage young people and to work with them to design activities that are exciting, safe, varied, developmental and directly responding to the needs and interests of participants.
The role will involve the delivery of youth work activity for young people in the Revoelution area, including leading and supporting a sessional youth worker and volunteers as required. It will be based at the Revoelution Hub, Ibbison Court F1 4AU and other locations in Revoe.
The work will assist with the delivery of the Revoelution Plan (2018-2019) by ensuring that the services provided improve the wellbeing, aspirations, confidence and employability of the young people of Revoe. Maintaining effective working links with the local College, school, Blackpool FC Community Trust and other third sector youth organisations will be a key element of the role.
