We provide specialist support that addresses young people’s experiences of violence and vulnerability.

Our extraordinary team bring our values to life by focusing on empowerment and inspiring positive change in ourselves and others, by striving for excellence and always working with integrity, by being collaborative, working together with vulnerable young people and communities, and by valuing equality, diversity and inclusion as being core to our work and our behaviours.

We have created a number of new roles in Enfield to deliver this work and candidates will be required to demonstrate strong relationship based skills & partnership working abilities in order to implement the new programme.
