Bounce Back for Kids (BB4K) is an innovative and holistic suite of programmes which includes support group work aimed at children aged between 5 and 12 years old and their non-abusive parent/carer. It has been developed by PACT and provides support to families once the abuse has ended and the perpetrator is no longer living in the family home. The project also delivers a programme for teens and their non-abusive parent/carer (Recovery Toolkit). PACT are currently developing a complementary under 5s programme which would result in a service for children of all ages. BB4K also offers 1-2-1 support and signposting for families that need immediate support or are not suitable to attend a group programme. The team also delivers training to professionals.
The BB4K senior support worker will be responsible for leading this vital project including promotion, overseeing enquiries and referrals, delivering, reporting, supporting the team of volunteers, monitoring and development and ensure that all aspects of the service are maintained with the highest of quality standards.
Having regard to the nature and context of the work, there is a genuine occupational requirement permitted under the Equality Act 2010 that this post is only available to women.
