42nd Street has been working with colleagues across Greater Manchester to deliver an effective, coordinated and compassionate response to the emotional wellbeing and mental health needs of those affected by the Manchester Arena Attack on the 22nd May 2017.
The attack caused immense distress to many children and young people who attended the event, their parents, carers and young people who had family members or friends who attended. Some communities have also been impacted by the aftermath and may have experienced additional trauma.
Through combined funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the Co-op Foundation, 42nd Street is now seeking to employ a passionate and driven practitioner for one year with immediate effect. The post holder will deliver trauma focused interventions to young people referred to 42nd Street from across Greater Manchester and will also partner with targeted grass-roots, local organisation that need additional support with dealing with trauma and building resilience and capacity within their communities.
The post holder will have a passion for young person centred approaches and experience of working around a wide variety of trauma with young people; they will also show an understanding of the social and cultural issues impacting on young people and communities and have the drive to lead this exciting new development with 42nd Street and key partners across Greater Manchester.
