To do this, we need a well trained and supported workforce and place significant investment in training and development opportunities. We have market-leading opportunities and terms and conditions.

Help us make a real difference to the lives of the young people in our care.

We are looking for a creative and forward-thinking mental health practitioner to manage the Mental Health and Substance Misuse Team at Her Majesty’s Young Offender Institute (HMYOI) Werrington. HMYOI Werrington is part of the Young Person’s Secure Estate for England housing young males aged 15 to 18 years, and is located near Stoke-on-Trent.

We are central to the implementation of the SECURE STAIRS initiative. Grounded in Attachment theory, Childhood Development and Trauma-Informed theories, this aims to provide a shared and collaborative multi-disciplinary holistic care package for young people who have often had multiple adverse and traumatic experiences. It also aims to ensure that staff have the right training, skills, supervision and support to understand and facilitate their own work in caring for young people, in addition to recognizing the impact of trauma on staff and within the system as a whole.

The overarching aim is to enable those in our care to have better mental and physical health; better education, employment and housing opportunities; and better chances of leading a pro-social and positive life, alongside promoting staff health and resilience and increased job satisfaction.
