Northorpe Hall Child &
Family Trust continues to grow and around 75% of all charity funds are spent on
salaries, so we are recruiting again.
In 2019, we’re a partner in
Thriving Kirklees – joining up and transforming health services for families in
Kirklees and we have additional funds to reduce waiting times. We’re
working more closely with schools and have been funded to pilot mental health
support teams in schools, again in partnership. We continue to
successfully raise funds by working with local businesses and through weddings
and events in our barn, as well as receiving funds from the Big Lottery and
Children in Need.
There are a wide range of people
working at Northorpe Hall in 2019 – over 70 employees, plus volunteers,
self-employed workers including counsellors, trainee education mental health
practitioners and CAMHS and Nursing staff employed by partner organisations,
co-located with us to join up services and provide the best support to families
and young people in Kirklees.
The team is diverse, talented,
hard-working and friendly – with a wide range of experience and professional
backgrounds. Some joined us early in their career and have gained
experience and qualifications with us over the years, others have brought
significant experience from education, social care, clinical settings and
family or youth work. We provide high quality support, supervision and
training to staff to ensure they can provide quality support to young people
and families. We work 8am to 8pm to respond to family’s needs, so we can
offer flexible working and part-time hours too.
Now is a great time to join the
Northorpe Hall team. You’ll get great experience of innovative,
responsive mental health support to children and families; get training and
development opportunities to grow your skills and knowledge and you’ll feel
supported and valued as part of a team. You will also make a real
difference to the lives of local young people who really need your support and
