AYPH is recruiting two Youth Advisers for a new three year project. The aim of the project is to support young people who have experienced sexual violence to develop a rights-based approach to sexual violence work. Through this project, young people will take part in a series of group workshops to learn about their rights, develop a resource that explains the importance of respecting and promoting the rights of young people affected by sexual violence and deliver local community events to share this with other young people and professionals.
The Youth Adviser role:
Two Youth Advisers will be supporting AYPH in the development and evaluation of this project from the start. The Youth Advisers will be young people (16-25) with experience of both using sexual violence services and group work with other young people focused on sexual violence. This role is an opportunity to ensure young people understand their rights and encourage services to put young people’s rights at the centre of what they do. The Youth Advisers will work directly with AYPH’s Youth Participation Coordinator. The role involves a set number of days and will be flexible so it can easily fit around other work, study or caring commitments. This is a paid consultancy role and all upfront costs (travel, food, accommodation and childcare) will be covered by AYPH.
