But with your help perhaps we could be…

guide-mockup-editFrom Monday 1st September, we’re launching our new accredited delivery partner initiative – offering the R U Different? programme greater capacity and reach across the UK.

We’ve already joined forces with a few keen and capable individuals who will be promoting and delivering R U Different? exclusively in counties across the North and South West of England.

Now we’re looking for a few more people who can help us in the North East, East, South East, Midlands, Wales and Scotland.

Programme Founder Gary Lovatt explains:

“This is an ideal opportunity for Individuals, Charities and Organisations who are passionate about engaging young people and communities in a more meaningful way.

Our programme is fun, engaging and strongly evidenced in terms of tangibly improving health and wellbeing outcomes, particularly for young people.

Having a strong network of accredited and local delivery partners will offer new and existing Local Authorities, Schools and Young People more face to face engagement opportunities and a greater consistency of service throughout our network.

With new programmes for Primary schools and Colleges also on the horizon, it’s a very exciting time to be involved.”

Joining up is John Rees (pictured right) – an experienced PSHE consultant covering the areas of West, South and East john reesYorkshire.

“I’m delighted to be supporting the wellbeing of young people, using the theory-driven, evidence-based work of Social Sense and thrilled to support such a good and growing organisation.”

The ideal candidate(s) / partners will have experience working directly or indirectly with young people (in a youth work or public health setting), be DBS registered and motivated to measurably improve outcomes.
You must also be available to attend training days in Manchester in September and October.

      Hi Sarah, thanks for getting in touch.

      The opportunity here is for individuals, Charities and Organisations who are working directly or indirectly with young people to consider promoting our evidenced based programme to complement their current activities. We are not funded by anyone on a grant basis or by national government and so we do rely on Local Authorities, Schools and Charities to commission us in order to survive and grow.

      Individuals working with us already have found this is great way to add or incorporate a ready-made programme into their own work which does of course offer an additional revenue stream. And for some, this does mean continual, full time employment in areas close to them where uptake allows.

      I hope that clarifies the opportunity. In the meantime we are always looking for ad hoc delivery partners to support existing contracts, so feel free to send across your CV to us if that’s of interest.
