    Hi All,

    I realise that the deadline for the job as group facilitator has gone but I am really interested and only heard about it this week.

    Currently, I work as and Outreach Worker and a Youth Worker, both roles are for Dorset County Council.

    Part of my role as a Youth Worker, for the past six years, is co-facilitating the Bridport Young Parent Group. We programme activities of informal education based on identified need and run a weekly group for parents up to 23 yrs of age, covering all aspects and issues affecting the lives of young people and their family life.

    If you wish to contact me please phone: 07741492155. I will ring tomorrow anyway to have a chat.

    Kind Regards

    Louise Gunnill

      Hello Louise – just to let you know, as we didn’t fill the Group Worker post last time around, we are currently advertising the post again. Please note that the post has changed since before (hours, duties, location) but do have a look on our website and if you’re interested please fill in the application form. Best wishes, Debbie Humberstone
