Barnardo's Rights and Advocacy service has been established in Fife for over 15 years. After a recent successful recommissioning process, from April 1st 2021, Barnardo's Children's Rights and Advocacy service will continue to provide all Rights and Advocacy work for children and young people in Fife. As a result of this process, the service is looking to expand the team to meet the requirements in the new service brief.
The service is looking for a Project Worker to take forward the Engagement and Participation aspect of the new service brief that the team will work to. You will have a passion for Children's Rights/Advocacy work and desire to ensure that the voice of the child is heard at a local and strategic level when decisions are being made about their future.

The Rights/Advocacy service will be aligning its practice in line with the recommendations made in The Promise and an understanding of this document would be advantageous.
