Family Intervention Practitioner Wakefield

This is a challenging and rewarding opportunity to work within a new project in Wakefield as a Familiy Intervention Practitioner.

Wakefield Autism Support Project (WASP) is funded by Wakefield CCG and is a collaboration between KIDS and Barnardo’s.

The service is unique in its approach to supporting children and young people’s emotional wellbeing, particularly where a young person experiences anxiety and low mood as a result of an Autism Spectrum Condition or where not diagnosed but identified social, communication and interaction difficulties or other neuro-developmental disorders.

WASP offers two distinct complementary elements which work in collaboration with each other to support both the parents/carers and the young person with a bespoke package of support.

The aim of the project in Wakefield is to work alongside existing commissioned services to identify young people who require targeted support around their emotional wellbeing in order to prevent a deterioration which may require more potentially intense intervention.

The Family Intervention Practitioner will work towards reducing the risk of crisis through providing interventions, coordinated support, practical information and emotional support to children, young people and their parents, carers.
