Details of the posts:

The aim of a reparation support worker is to coordinate and support a range of interventions and community reparations projects for young offenders. Community Reparation is aimed at ensuring that young offenders sentenced as part of a community order carry out tasks that prove beneficial to the neighbourhood and its local people.

The Support worker will be responsible for supervising and arranging programmes suitable for each offender. This will include carrying out research on their criminal history as well as liaising with the Youth Offending team, consulting with them about the findings and informing them of the reparation programme that has been instructed.

Other duties may include contributions to YOT meetings, which could involve supervision, research and appropriate training.  They are expected to contribute to the Youth Offender Team’s information system. It should be noted that any prospective reparation support worker should deliver their work in a manner that promotes anti-discriminatory practice in both YOT members and offenders. Reparation Support Workers will also be expected to work evenings and/or at the weekend.

In terms of previous experience, successful candidates would have worked with youngsters and their families in a sector involved in the criminal justice system. It is also obligatory that they would have held a position that deals with victims or victim support, and one that requires work within a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary environment. Position holders would have up-to-date knowledge of youth justice legislation, especially the Crime and Disorder Act of 1998 and the Criminal and Immigration Act of 2008, and the standards of restorative justice, the reparation practice, and would be able to reflect an understanding of the factors that put young people at risk of offending.
