My Trust’s mission is to ensure young people are well prepared for their future and we achieve this through a number of different activities.

Me2 is a peer mentor programme which aims to counter the negative attitudes and social barriers that often prevent disabled young people (including young people with additional needs) from being included in mainstream youth and leisure activities.  We train non—disabled peer mentors (aged 15-19) to support disabled young people aged 10 to 19 so that they can confidently access mainstream youth provision.  We work directly with the mentor, mentee and mentee’s parents to ensure appropriate matching and a successful placement so that the mentee will continue to attend the provision independently when the mentor support is withdrawn. 

The Me2 Youth Support Officer will focus on supporting the effective delivery of the Me2 programme through face-to-face and telephone support to the mentors, mentees, parents and clubs participating.   The main duty is to support the mentor and mentee to successfully complete a 20-week placement at a youth club or leisure.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications to cover the following areas:

Tunbridge Wells / Tonbridge and Malling/ Maidstone/Medway/ Swale
