Cambridge Acorn Project is looking to hire to an exciting new role, an ‘Inequality Practitioner’ who will work to lessen the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and promote wellbeing. The successful candidate will work alongside children and their families where a child, or children, have experienced at least one ACE. The successful candidate will work within our ecological model of wellbeing looking at different domains of a child’s life which can cause stress, but which are beyond the immediate bounds of therapy to deal with. This includes income and benefits, housing, enrichment and opportunities and what we refer to as ‘a justice pathway’ (an asset based model using a child’s natural strengths, interests and skills to help them achieve in the future). Full training will be given in the model of working. There may also be the opportunity to engage in some project work for the right candidate.

Volunteer Opportunities:

 

We are currently developing this area of our work and now have our own volunteering section. Please click here for more information.

 

Service Delivery and Development: 

 

See below. If you have an idea which you would like help to develop, if it fits with our core mission, please contact us and we will try to arrange to speak to you about your idea and see if we can help you to develop it.

 

SERVICES: This is our core mission. We are committed to developing new services which address evidenced need around issues of emotional well-being and social justice. If - either as the member of a community, or a social caseworker, living, or working, in Cambridgeshire, you have an idea for a new service, we would love to hear from you. Before doing so, please have a read through of our mission statement, and our organisational values, to see if you think we'll be a good fit for your idea. If you think we could work together, then please contact us to discuss your idea further. Please note that we are not a funding body, but, if we feel that we can work together, we will try to support your idea to get off the ground. Naturally, we don't charge for this - if you're reading this then you probably have the same ideas about social justice, emotional well-being and equality that we do. Further, we equally don't lay any claim to your idea whatsoever and our relationship will only last as long as you need it to. If you feel that your project/service needs an identity of its own, then we will say our goodbyes. We just want to help build a world which is more just and more equal, and where more people have access to the services which they need.
