Community Outreach Worker

Riverbank is a Christian charity supporting and equipping vulnerable single mothers of all faiths and none through long-term emotional and practical support in partnership with church communities. A Riverbank Community Outreach Worker comes into school one day per week to work with vulnerable pupils through activities that include chat, art and play. Pupils gain greater confidence and emotional literacy, better able to make sense of their feelings, helping to build resilience and improve wellbeing. Parents gain bespoke support in a variety of ways. The school refers pupils to Riverbank on a case-by-case basis and Riverbank reviews each referral for eligibility, always seeking to be able to support where possible.
