Job Description: 

1.0 PURPOSE:
Intensive Support Fostering is a specialist fostering scheme that exists within the South Eastern and Belfast Trust. The client group that we support are young people aged 10 to 18 years presenting with highly complex difficulties, and as such they cannot be placed within mainstream fostering or residential care.

As a project worker your role will be to offer an individualised and goal-oriented programme of work, helping to identify and develop their strengths and aspirations.

As a project worker you will require a high level of self-awareness and reflective capacity. You will also need to demonstrate these qualities in your ability to adapt and adjust your own interpersonal style in order to best communicate with the young people. Project workers will need to be flexible, resilient and open minded enough to deal with some of the challenges that such complex needs can present.
