Part-time / Full-time: 
Full-Time
Salary: 
Grade 4 salary scale:£16,936 - £22,516 per annum
Job Description: 

PURPOSE:
To assist service users by improving the quality of lives within their community by promoting wellbeing, independence and healthy life choices. The Time Out programme meets the needs of young people (8-17) and their families by providing an alternative to placement in short-term and/or long-term care by providing a three to four-day (two to three nights) social, educational, cultural and recreational break at an Extern youth facility.
Time out staff engages the child or young person in a range of activities and can help him/her examine lifestyle issues while the social worker intervenes with the carers thus allowing the child or young person to return to their living arrangements with the crisis being averted. This approach prevents breakdown in living arrangements and the child or young person can subsequently be referred to a programme within Extern's continuum of services.
