Are you great with young people and enjoy a challenge? Can you relate with teenagers and build rapport?

We’re looking for enthusiastic and supportive individuals to join our team as Detached Youth Workers. Detached youth work is a model of youth work practice aimed at vulnerable young people. It takes place on their own terms, in spaces like streets, cafes and parks, and at times that are appropriate to them.

Arun Youth Projects is part of Arun Church. We work with Arun Community Safety Partnership, East Preston Youth Club, Littlehampton Town Council, and Rustington Parish Council. Each year we engage with hundreds of young people to help them be happy, safe, and recognise their potential. To do this, we run youth clubs, projects and support in the Littlehampton, Rustington and East Preston area.

At Arun Church we offer a range of activities and services, tailored to the needs of the local community. We keep our focus on the safety and welfare of children and young people, offer a fun, supportive team environment and rewarding work.

Appointment to this post is subject to a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

This project is funded and supported by the Arun Community Safety Partnership and the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner.
