About the service

Our Tan Y Bryn Residential Service (winner of the 2022 Stephenson Award for Service of the Year) in Rhyl is a five-bedded therapeutic residential home for children and young people between the ages of 7-17 years.

We provide support for young people who are likely to have experienced early childhood trauma. You would be a part of a dynamic team to support and encourage our young people to reach their full potential.  Some young people may experience low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and have poor communication skills which can lead to disruptive behaviours and a positive compassionate attitude is paramount.

The role involves shift work and sleeping in the home approximately 7 times in a month. 

How you'll help to create brighter futures  

As a Residential Support Worker, you'll be engaging in enjoyable activities both within the project and within the community. You'll be assuming responsibility for the personal care and daily routines of the young individuals, providing support with personal hygiene, communication, administering of medication and ensuring the safeguarding of our young people by accurately recording and reporting.

 

Let's talk about you

Don't worry if you have never worked in a similar role before, it is your personality and personal values that matter. If you are passionate about creating brighter futures, this could be the perfect role for you.

Ideally you will:

  • Understand how to engage with young people
  • Have a positive approach and ‘can do' attitude
  • Ability to work on your own or as part of a team
  • Be ready to complete a level 3 in Residential Childcare within 2 years of commencing employment with us, full support will be provided.

 

Good to know

As a non-profit organization, we are committed to the recent update from the Welsh Government in relation to ‘eliminating private profit from the care of children looked after'.

“80% of care homes in Wales are run by the private sector. Our aim is to ensure that public money invested in the care of children looked after does not profit individuals or corporate entities, but is wholly spent on children's services to deliver better experiences and outcomes for children and young people, supporting service development and improvement and further professional development for staff.”

By 2027, they aim to have the care of children who are looked after in Wales, to be provided by the public Sector and charitable or non-profile organisations.

“Mae 80% o gartrefi plant yng Nghymru yn cael eu rhedeg gan y sector preifat. Ein nod ni yw sicrhau nad yw'r arian cyhoeddus sy'n cael ei fuddsoddi mewn gofalu am blant sy'n derbyn gofal yn mynd yn elw i unigolion nac endidau corfforaethol, ond yn cael ei wario'n gyfan gwbl ar wasanaethau plant i gyflawni profiadau a chanlyniadau gwell i blant a phobl ifanc, cefnogi datblygiad gwasanaethau a gwelliant a datblygiad proffesiynol ychwanegol i staff.”

Erbyn 2027, eu nod yw y bydd gofal plant sy'n derbyn gofal yng Nghymru yn cael ei ddarparu gan y Sector cyhoeddus a sefydliadau elusennol neu nid-er-elw.
