Youth Worker – The Churches Trust | Job Vacancy

Event date(s): -
Jobs available | NICRC

The Churches Trust was established over 30 years ago in recognition of the fact that deprivation and disadvantage are key barriers to building a united community, equality of opportunity and good relations.  The Churches Trust work is characterised by two main priorities.  The first is addressing deprivation and social injustice, working with people at the margins of society providing programmes and opportunities for enrichment.  The second is creating a shared and better future for all by standing together with all churches, schools, and communities to give a united voice in an area plagued with the legacy of division through the troubles in Northern Ireland.
