If you share our passion for delivering quality client-centred services that significantly improve the lives of children and young people we’d love to hear from you.

Have you ever left a difficult shift and felt like you weren’t supported?  As an EDMEN Youth Worker, you will have access to debriefing, supervision and support.  Let’s grab a coffee and have a chat about it.
