About SASP Jump Start Mentor (Full Time / Part Time)

Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership are looking to recruit full time and part time posts within the South Somerset and Mendip area to support Young People aged between 8-18 years old with a child-centred relationship based approach. The Young People you would be supporting are those who may have chaotic home lives, struggle to stay in school or may be known to the police. The programme will support young people and introduce them to physically active provision in sports through linking with sports clubs or other active youth sessions with the aim of them sustaining their participation and providing them with an enjoyable, safe and belonging environment. All mentors will be given training in restorative practice, first aid, safeguarding etc.

We are particularly interested in recruiting individuals who have a deep understanding of the difficulties that some of these children and young people face and some knowledge around Adverse Childhood Experiences and the impact of trauma. Experience of this either on a personal basis, through work or volunteering is essential. We are looking for people who value the important role sport and activity can play in developing Young People's self-worth, esteem and resilience.

For more information, please contact Laura Dyke or Luke Jackson on 01823 653990, or email recruitment@sasp.co.uk.

Please see below for the job description, salary and hours. Full time and part time hours available.
