Young advisors to help What Works for Children’s Social Care

We are looking for two young advisors to help What Works for Children’s Social Care

Are you a young person who wants their point of view put across? The What Works for Children’s Social Care (WWCSC) wants your expert advice about what issues and topics are important to young people; telling your views about research projects and other pieces of work that are happening.

The WWCSC is looking for two advisors who can come to the London office three times a year to meet with key people from the What Works team. You will be supported by a member of SCIE staff.

What you need

All you need is experience of using children’s social care services, e.g. having a social worker due to having a child in need or child protection plan, being care experienced (‘in care’); and:

  • Be 18 years old or over
  • Be willing to share your thoughts and ideas
  • Be able to sign up to the time commitment and travel to London

Why me?

You would receive useful work experience, including influencing a national research organisation, working with senior managers, giving your opinions verbally and in writing. Payment is £150 per day with reasonable expenses (we would talk to you about how this might work if you are receiving benefits). 

Apply

Thanks for your interest.

The What Works for Children’s Social Care team.

Closing Date: Friday 21st July 2019. We will respond by Thursday 1st August 2019.
