Job Description: 

The Janus programme aims to prevent reception into care and/or to support community or foster placements. The programme also aims to support young people returning to the community from residential care/ custody.
The enhanced Janus (CCA) provides more intensive wraparound services to young people and their parents assessed as being in need, and offers a community based alternative to care.
There will be a Time-Out component which can augment this process by providing short stay residential respite placements (maximum three nights) for individuals.

The programme is creative and dynamic, utilising local, regional and national resources to facilitate intervention strategies. Planned and responsive overnights and respite residentials are integral to the programmes. The programme will complement other interventions as part of a strategy in reducing the requirement for a custodial or residential response.

The Midwest have been selected as a site for Creative Community Alternatives. CCA refers to a holistic service in the community for those children & young people who present with complex factors that include neglect, attachment issue, mental health concerns, parenting issues, & alcohol/drug misuse. The intention of the CCA will be to build on the current plan for a child/young person and strengthen the services/supports been provided to them & their families.
