Role description: Project Support

The play and youth worker role is an overarching role which involves planning, 
development and delivery of a range of activities which are age appropriate for 
children and young people. You can expect to be involved in aspects of all of the 
groups which we run. Alongside children and young people the candidate will 
co-create a program of activities which are fun and engaging as well as 
contributing towards young people’s overall development. 

Northbourne is a Youth & Community charity based in Elswick in the West End of Newcastle. 
Established in 2000 we work from an end terrace house based on the Northbourne estate, 
We are delivering neighborhood youth work on a very local level. 
Our underpinning aim is to provide activities for achievement. Our activities are 
predominantly for the benefit of children and young people between the ages of 8-19 years. 
We also work with the families of children and local community members. 

We have a strong value base which puts children and young people at the heart of what we 
do. Children are given opportunities to use their voice, tell us what they want and be involved 
in something exciting. We are a listening organization and value the opinions of all children 
and young people who are part of Northbourne. We deliver 16 sessions each week so we are 
very busy and not one day is the same. You can find yourself camping on the Duke of 
Edinburgh award one day to running a youth cafe the next, there’s something for everyone! 
By taking part in activities we aim to give children the best start in life and to give them as 
many opportunities as possible to allow them to develop and reach their full potential. 

If you have any questions or would like an informal chat or visit prior to applying we are open to meet a mutually convenient time.  

Interviews will likely be held on Wednesday 29th May
