Seeds4Success recognises that children and young people live in families and local communities that can be both sources of support and safety but also danger and risk. We believe that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and should be reflected in every aspect of our work with children and young people. The welfare of every child and young person in contact with the charity remains our priority at all times.
This role is a regulated activity and thus subject to an enhanced DBS check, a children barred list check and two satisfactory references.
