About us and the role 

We are embarking on an ambitious journey at FfB to engage with the most vulnerable communities in our society. Part of this will be the continuation of SPACE which FfB and Project 229 have been running in partnership with Bedford Borough Council. Over the last year, SPACE has been providing young people fortnightly access to a youth provision specifically for children and young people affected by domestic abuse. This role will expand the SPACE project and develop a healthy relationships programme which will be delivered through local schools and academies.


What we are looking for

Thanks to securing funding from The Harpur Trust we are now in a position to expand the SPACE project. We are looking for a motivated person to be the face of SPACE and help our partnership reach as many children and young people as possible over the funding period. You will be experienced in working with local schools, be confident at reaching out to large cohorts of children and young people, and have a desire to help us in developing a healthy relationships core offer across the Borough.


What we can offer you

You will be well supported by the Project Lead from Project 229 who will provide day to day management and oversight. You will be based at their offices in Kempston but there will be a significant amount of time out in the local community, schools and academies. We will provide a safe and secure environment for you to work in and all expenses will be met by the Charity.
