Residential Day / Night Care Workers
Powys County Council and Powys Teaching Health Board in partnership are opening a Therapeutic Children's Home, one of a kind, in our local community and we need your support.
Our home is set within the idyllic rural countryside of North Powys, near the peaceful village of Llanbrynmair. It is a spacious residence with three bedrooms, sleeping accommodation for staff, a therapy room, comfy snug, living and dining area that open out to a large garden.
Our home will support 3 children/young people (Age 11-18) with complex emotional and behavioural difficulties due to their early life experience.
The outside space at our home will be as important as the inside, providing the opportunity for children and young people to care and handle small animals, to garden by growing fruit, vegetables, and flowers; for everyone at our home to enjoy the therapeutic benefit of fresh air and exercise in beautiful surroundings.
As part of a dedicated team, you will create a safe home that will improve placement stability and parenting capacity to support children and young people with the most complex needs to achieve positive outcomes, improve their life chances and social well-being. This unique opportunity in Powys will enable us to support children in their own communities, as part of our vision to enable children to stay closer to home.
The aim of Therapeutic Care is to promote personal change, reflected in changes in thinking, emotional functioning, and behaviour. The team will be trained to be trauma-informed to help children and young people recover from their early adversity by developing greater emotional trust and security in adults.
