BRCC has recently won a contract tendered by Bedford Borough Council for a development partner to introduce Local Area Coordinators across the Borough. The contract is for 2 years, with the option to extend for 1 further year.
The 3 Local Area Coordinators are to be catalysts for the development of community capacity and “self-help” groups. They will foster the creation of, and signpost people to, alternatives that can prevent entry to the care system. Early support and non-statutory intervention to nip problems in the bud and maintain independence is the focus for these roles. The target group is people with some vulnerability but not yet eligible for Council social care services.
In the interests of finding the best possible candidates for these positions, we will consider applications for job share (where a role is shared by two people applying together); job split (where a role is split on a part-time basis between two or more people applying separately); and secondment from other organisations.
An enhanced DBS check is required.
