At Bexley Voluntary Services Council (BVSC) you will find a team who are absolutely committed to supporting a strong, sustainable, and influential voluntary and community sector that can make a positive impact on people’s lives in Bexley.
We work hard, we help each other and go out of way to help others and find solutions rather than focusing on problems. We are positive and proactive and, although absolutely focused on our areas of expertise, we work as a team so that BVSC is the best it can be. Above all, everything we do is to strengthen our local Voluntary and Community Sector.
BVSC are initiating a new service which aims to provide prevention and early intervention work for young people, ensuring that they get the help they need and reduce the necessity for higher cost specialist service. The new project will connect 10–17-year-olds to existing voluntary sector services and provide a pathway to raise any concerns, issues and areas of need, specific to Bexley.
The postholder will be responding to the need we have seen as a result of Covid for young people in Bexley, working with local organisations, schools and healthcare professionals to co-ordinate and deliver a programme of support for children and young people, and will contribute to better emotional wellbeing for CYP as well as build capacity within the Community and Voluntary Sector. This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in a project within its early planning stages, and to have a real impact in bringing to life the first Social Prescribing service for Children and Young People in Bexley.
