Youth Workers

Led by Danny Alderslowe, the Drop-In’s paid youth worker, youth workers at the Drop-In are part of a team of adults who commit time regularly, once a week, once a fortnight or once a month.  There are other adult volunteers with particular talents who help on an occasional basis, such as driving a minibus, running a cafe, supporting Duke of Edinburgh Groups, organising football games, or supporting one-off fundraising events.

Anyone working at the Drop-In undergoes a PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) disclosure used by employers to make safer recruitment decisions.  The PVG Scheme helps to ensure that those who have regular contact with young people through paid or unpaid work do not have a known history of harmful behaviour.

Youth Workers have regular meetings and attend regular training sessions in different areas of their activities as necessary, for example: first aid, child protection, food hygiene, health and safety, risk assessment and good youth work practise.
