Job summary: An award-winning charity established in 1998, YoungDementia UK supports working-age people with dementia to live well. We provide face to face support services for the individual and their family in Oxfordshire, email and phone support to families beyond the county and we plan to help improve the lives of people affected by young onset dementia nationally.

This is an exciting role which is essential to meet the demand for individually-tailored support sessions for people of working age with dementia in Oxfordshire. You will also support and develop informal group sessions, and create opportunities for socialising including contributing to our monthly evening Supper Club.

Working with the Service Manager and the existing Support Co-ordinator (Central/South), you will ensure that the support relationship with the person and their family works well from start to finish, and reflects the values and positive approach of YDUK. You will share the supervision of our specialist support workers and carefully co-ordinate their work. As part of your co-ordinator role, you will also contribute to the development of support of individual people with young onset dementia from diagnosis onwards with a flexible and creative approach. Outside of your co-ordinator role, there may be opportunities to do individual support sessions which would be payable at support worker rate/£9.47 per hour.

Do you have excellent planning, prioritising and co-ordination skills – do you have an understanding of dementia and how it affects people; can you supervise a small team who are doing a challenging job with people who have a progressive condition? Are you calm, adaptable, empathic yourself? If so, we look forward to meeting you. Induction, on-going training and supervision offered.
YDUK team work from home bases, utilising an e-office and you will need to be reasonably confident and competent with e-communication.

Location – Oxfordshire – central and north Oxon
