Following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower, extra funding for Children and Young People’s organisations has been made available through a coalition of funders.

This coalition is being led by John Lyon’s Charity, a local funder, who has an expertise in working with groups based in Kensington & Chelsea as well as a dedicated focus on children and young people.

With the sudden increase of need in K&C, the funder coalition is working to support the responding organisations to ensure they have the appropriate resources they need to do their work.  This increase in delivery could easily create a capacity issue for organisations that use sessional staff to deliver their activities.  To try to ensure that there are enough qualified sessional workers available, John Lyon’s Charity is building a Sessional Youth Worker Bank to ease the pressure of recruitment on local organisations.

We would like you to complete the following questionnaire to add your details to the Sessional Youth Worker Bank.  All information will be held centrally by John Lyon’s Charity and not be shared with third parties. If a project needs extra staff capacity they will have to speak to the Charity in order to access The Bank. You will then be contacted by the JLC Team before your personal contact details are passed on.

Please note that you will only be contacted if your skills are needed.

Do cascade this questionnaire to any Youth and Community Workers you think may be interested.
