Includem are currently recruiting for Sessional Mentors to join its Glasgow team to support children, young people and their families. Ideally the successful candidates should have a full driver’s license and access to a car for work purposes.
Multiple risk is a collaborative early intervention approach for young people aged 12-19 within the NHS Glasgow Youth Health Service, working in partnership with other professionals based in 9 health centres across the Glasgow area.
The service focuses on young people who engage in risk taking behaviours, anti-social behaviours or who need support around addictions with gaming, alcohol and drugs. Includem staff will engage with each young person at the venue of their choice on a weekly basis offering them one-to-one sessions, weekly, for up to twelve weeks.
Includem staff work collaboratively with the young person to complete a support plan that is unique to that young person. This is used to support a young person to explore and set their own goals. Includem’s A Better Life toolkit is used to support young people to achieve their goals, reducing their risk taking behaviours.
Outreach support within communities is also offered to support and encourage young people to attend each venue and to involve family members in their support if required. Outreach is offered to a young person who may be struggling emotionally to attend a venue, to re-engage a young person to attend the venue or at the end of the support whilst in the community.
What does the role involve?
The ideal candidate should be able to commit to a minimum of 5 hours per week with a view to working more hours as and when required (including evenings and weekends). As sessional Mentors work directly with young people and families in the community there is a requirement that you can drive and have access to a car for work purposes.
