Responsible to the Creative & Wellbeing Projects Manager and working alongside our creative team and staff from partner organisations, the Keyworker manages a caseload of vulnerable participants for whom they provide: assessment, review, and goal planning support; support to take part in Pioneer activities; information, advice and guidance on progression towards volunteering, learning, employment or increased community involvement and; signposting and/or referral into other support. The Keyworker also supports the wider Pioneer team to record and manage participant data using the web based Compass Client Record Information Service and shares responsibility for managing the overall Compass in Craven website, encouraging and supporting other local organisations to sign up to and use the system.
