CEDAR is an established successful therapeutic 12-week groupwork programme for Children, Young People and their mothers, in recovery from domestic abuse. The CEDAR co-ordinator roles are pivotal to the way in which groups are organised and facilitated.
You will work alongside the CEDAR Children’s Groups Co-ordinator to develop, manage and deliver the CEDAR 12-week community group work programme.
Responsibilities include: overseeing and delivering the group work programme; managing referrals; scheduling and delivering groups and co-ordinating and providing support to co-facilitators. A significant proportion of time will be spent carrying out assessments with families to establish if the CEDAR programme is suitable for children. Assessment is a key element of the coordinator role and is a vital way in which mothers and their children are motivated to engage with their groups or supported to access more appropriate services. Coordinators will act as a single point of contact for both referrers and families.
