About us Current vacancies Full Time Family Mediation Worker - Newport Llamau is daring to imagine a world without homelessness – will you help us to create it? Llamau’s mission is to end youth homelessness and homelessness for women in Wales. It’s a big ambition and to some people it might seem impossible, but we know that if we all work together, homelessness genuinely doesn’t have to exist. We’re looking for passionate, talented and tenacious people to join Team Llamau. It is vital that we step in early to deal with the issues that cause homelessness before it's too late. We are expanding our Family Mediation provision in Newport. We are recruiting for a full time Family Mediator to work with young people to resolve family relationship issues and ensure they can continue to live at home. We step in early to ensure that young people and women across Wales do not become homeless. Most of us know that prevention is better than cure, and the people we support tell us that their lives would have been so different if they'd received the support they needed when they first needed it. We know from our own research that exposure to traumatic experiences as a child significantly increases the chance of youth homelessness. In fact, 97% of young homeless people have experienced at least one Adverse Childhood Experience and nearly a quarter experienced five or more. You’ll be an empathic person, able to understand and respond to the needs of young people as they navigate through a challenging time in their lives. You’ll be working alongside passionate and supportive colleagues in a rewarding environment, where you’ll be making a huge contribution to creating a Wales without homelessness, every single day.
